Victorian Sterling Silver Pin Brooch w/ Paste Stones Beyond Ornate - image 1 of 5

You know what's so great about Victorian jewelry? There was no TV or computers or social chatter to distract the jewelry maker. He or she could sit at the jeweler's table and tinker and detail and perfect the piece they were making. Maybe there was an Edison cylinder playing some Mozart on the gramaphone machine in the background. That was the 'high tech' of the day.

Just look at this pin. It started out as a plain piece of sterling silver (tested) and ended up as a divine brooch that's museum worthy.

There's so much going on...it flows with intricate wire work, with raised little silver bead work, things that look like crowns and fleur de lis. So this pin is probably French. And there are clear stones, called 'paste' back then...four in the center with two more at each end.

The pin measures 2 1/2 inches across by 1 inch high. It weighs 4.3 grams.

The back has its original extended ~C~ clasp. It's open just enough to let the pin through so it's very secure.

The pin is unmarked though there are lots of little dot-like marks that could be hallmarks but nothing is discernible.

We've left the patina as found with a slight buff. Pin is in excellent antique condition.

And now, we'll just leave our computer and watch some TV and hope someone will find and notice this beautiful antique pin.
