Apparently, the Victorian wardrobe had its complexities and at times needed a little extra security.
So this antique pin has the usual standard curled ~C~ clasp with extended point on the pin AND also an extra 1 1/4 inch stickpin attached to a chain which is attached to the pin. Just to make sure the pin doesn't run away.
The pin is pretty complex in itself even though it's just 1 by 1 inch. The spiraling brass curls all around. The scalloped scrolls are topped with gold...probably 9K or 10K. Moving inward, there are more smaller spirals and finally at center, a faux diamond of paste. The stone shows normal age-related wear through a magnifier. The back pin mechanism appears to be sterling silver.
The pin retains much of its original Victorian patina. Excellent antique condition. This little Victorian pin...it's a complex little wonder.
