Did she or didn't she? The 1892 case of Lizzie Borden is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries. Lizzie Borden was tried and acquitted of the August 4, 1892 ax murders of her father and stepmother in Fall River, Massachusetts. No one else was charged in the murders, and despite ostracism from other residents, Borden spent the remainder of her life in Fall River.

This crime case coined the term 'ax murderer' and no doubt, this Victorian ax pin was made as a souvenir of that captivating mystery.

Made of mother-of-pearl, the ax is carved and has a sterling silver band around the top of the handle. The back has its original brass and silver ~C~ clasp.

Measures 2 1/4 inches long by 7/8 inch at the blade. Pin is in excellent antique condition.

(Today, the Lizzie Borden house is still there. It's a compound that operates as a museum, bed, breakfast, and drinking establishment. It's one of the most haunted places in the United States and hosts fun events year-round including Victorian dinners, murder mystery nights, an escape room, a wedding venue, and even a place where you can now throw an ax yourself!)
