We are offering an early 20th century bar pin. It is very simple, so the description won't take long. It is on a gold tone mount with arrow-type ends. There are 12 dogtooth set clear rhinestones in a single line, which may have been referred to as paste in its day. What is most unusual about the pin is that the catch is safety pin. Research indicates this was a closure used mostly in the very late 1800's and early 1900's. This bar pin is 3 1/4" long and 1/8" wide. Original listing price $18. Item 73296a
