It's not just a pin. It's also a hand-painted artwork on porcelain. This lovely Victorian pin is made of porcelain on a gilded brass backing. The porcelain is hand-painted with pink and red roses. These porcelain pins were a form of Friendship / Sweetheart jewelry during the Victorian era.
The pin measures 1 3/4 by 2 1/8 inches. The brass back now has a more secure rollover clasp which replaced the original ~C~ clasp (professionally done). Normal age wear to the gilded back. There are no chips to the porcelain edges. Pin is in excellent antique condition. Circa 1900.
