One look at the curves and flow of this antique pin and you know instantly that it was made during the Art Nouveau era (1895 to 1910).
The pin is silvered metal with fancy scrollwork, an overlay of etched floral, and two glass cabochons that are a beautiful blue/purple color. The pin almost has a butterfly shape with a wide ornate span.
The pin measures 3 inches across by 1 3/4 inches high. The back has the original ~C~ clasp and is signed C&R, a Victorian jewelry maker. The pin is in excellent vintage condition. We gave it a light buff and leave further polishing to the buyer.
