Antique bar pin on ribbon. This gold-plated molded solid brass pin is embossed with the words "Le Petit Journal", which was a daily newspaper published in Paris from 1863-1944. 1.5 inches wide, 2.125 inches long. Brass with a matte brass plating- this finish is known as Russian goldplate in the world of vintage costume jewelry and is no longer produced in the same way. A very handsome adornment with a safety pin handsewn to the ribbon. If you need a conversation starter, this could be it- but I can only guess at the significance. This is a lovely display item, but could also be pinned to a larger doll.
