We have a soft spot for unusual vintage artisan figural pieces... especially when they're this unusual.
We call her 'Curly Top' because her hair is a wiggle of wires. They're springy coils made of silver. She's also made of sterling silver (acid tested) but she's dolled up in a white dress with green beads and a drum in hand with some beads around it.
The pin measures 1 1/4 by 2 3/8 inches. The clasp is a secure rollover. This can probably also be worn as a pendant as there are two bails back there with her hair that would take a chain.
The silver has been left unpolished as some prefer it with original patina. Overall, Curly Top is in excellent condition...as long as you don't mind the occasional bad hair day. Circa 1970s.
