Face pins are always intriguing...especially when they have an exotic ethnic mystique about them.
This modernist face is as sleek and minimalist as you'll find. Just a few etched lines create a stoic expression. Happy? Sad? Non-committal?. (Tests have shown that the same face will be read differently by different people.)
The pin is made of genuine horn. There are little bits of mother-of-pearl in the eyes. The pin measures 1 1/4 inches across by 3 3/4 inches long. The back has a secure latched pin. (The photo makes the clasp look discolored but it is not...it's bright silver-tone metal.) Pin is in excellent condition.
