Maybe this is how the artistic Victorian girl expressed her creative interests...a bar pin decorated with an art palette.
The antique pin is circa 1890. It features an etched palette made of goldplate on brass. The brass bar is textured and 'wrapped' with hobnailed brass rope.
Pin measures 2 inches across by 1/2 inch wide. Back has a ~C~ clasp. A bit of solder on the back may indicate there was once a little brush sticking through the hole. The pin is still lovely as it is and maybe today's artistic girl would agree.
