There are at least two things that impressed us about this vintage pin. It's big. And it's rare (have never seen it before in decades of jeweling). It's also very ornate for a costume pin. (Okay...that's three things.)
The two-piece pin is made of pressed silvertone metal with an openwork design. Pin includes a large key attached via three link chains to a round counterpart. Both parts are jeweled with opaque turquoise glass stones and a large glass amethyst at center.
The key measures 2 by 4 inches. The chain is 6 inches straight across. The round piece is 1 3/4 inches. Add them up and it's a LARGE bold dynamic pin.
Each piece has its own secure rollover clasp. Each piece is intact with all stones in place.
It's surprising that there's no marking on these but there's no doubt that this pin was made by a very good creative maker of costume jewelry.
If you want to make a statement or leave a big impression, here's the key to doing it.
Excellent vintage condition. Unpolished patina. Circa 1940s.
