This fantastic 1920s amber pin looks like something a Ziegfeld Follies girl would have on her head. It's a 'crown' of five genuine Baltic amber nuggets. They're shaped and polished to bring out their natural nuanced beauty.
The color is mostly a translucent rich honey with one piece of opaque lemon egg yolk trying to steal the show.
The crown of amber is fastened to a curved brass back. Brass chains dangle across and at the sides holding four beads of amber.
The pin measures 2 1/4 inches across by 4 inches high. The back has the original ~ C ~ clasp. The pin is unmarked but we believe it came from the Baltic region. Circa 1920s. We haven't polished the brass...leave it to buyer. This pin is in excellent vintage condition.
