Don't save this for a rainy day. This Victorian umbrella pin is too nice an antique jewel to keep in a box.
The workmanship on this is so fanciful. The sterling silver filigree wire work is woven to look like the Victorian lace umbrella of the day. It's handmade from the umbrella tip to the curled handle.
The pin measures 5/8 inch wide by 1 3/4 inches long. The back has a curled ~C~ clasp with an extended pin tip which would tuck into the Victorian garment. The tube hinged pin indicates this was made in the mid to late 1800s.
The pin tests for sterling silver. It weighs 5 grams. Unpolished excellent antique condition. Rain or shine, you're going to love this old pin.
