I'm trying to show the detail and beauty of this vintage romantic scene pin. It's incredible and so well carved. The scene is a man and woman reaching up for something from the tree above them. They are garbed in vintage clothing, perhaps Shakespearean? It measures 2.5" by 2" and is prong set in a sterling silver frame with 6 prongs. The frame has been tested as silver, but is not marked as far as I can tell. Very old, very well done, very unique. It's amazing that artists were able to carve something this delicate from Vegetable ivory also known as Tagua nut. Early to mid-Victorian era.
Excellent condition. Non-smoking household.
