The sash pins were worn in the late Victorian to the Edwardian time periods. They are 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 a heavier piece with gold tone wash. There is a center portion of flowers with a buckle design. The closure is a C clasp. Size is 2 by 2 3/4 inches. The condition is very good with some rub marks and scratches on the reverse.
