The sash pin was popular in the late Victorian through the Edwardian time periods. They were a type of pin used to secure a sash at a lady's hip when the fad of wearing a sash over the shoulder and across the bosom became popular imitating Queen Elizabeth. Most have thick pin stems to allow for penetrating several layers of fabric. This pin is thin gold tone metal with an embossed ornate pattern designed as a buckle. The condition is very good. Size is 2 by 3 1/2 inches.
