It's a very fancy figural pipe pin. Made of solid sterling silver, the silver has a gold vermeil wash over it. The pipe lid and long curved stem is set with some clear crystal rhinestones.
As if that isn't opulent enough, there's a hanging double chain and a bar of ball dangles too.
This vintage pin measures 3 1/4 inches across by 2 1/2 inches high with dangles. It weighs 21.2 grams. The back has a secure rollover clasp. It's marked STERLING but the mark was stamped on a curve so it's not very legible. Just to confirm, we acid-tested this and it's solid sterling. Circa 1940s. An unusual old figural pin in excellent vintage condition.
