Wow...this antique pin has it all. It's a miniature art work featuring a hand-painted floral scene on porcelain. The colorful flowers are surrounded by a wide sterling silver frame that's enameled with the Greek key design in black.
The pin measures 2 inches across and domes up about 3/8 inch. The back has the original Victorian era ~C~ clasp which curls around to hold very securely. The pin is unmarked but has been acid-tested for sterling.
Circa 1890, it's in excellent antique condition with paint and enamel intact. We've left the original silver patina as found so buyer can decide whether to polish it or not. It's a beautiful large old pin...good to go at least another century.
