This old sterling silver basket pin runneth over with marcasite studded leaves and bright green stones of what looks like chrysoprase or jade.
The pin measures 1 1/4 by 1 1/2 inches. The back has the old trombone closure which was patented in 1850. The pin is unmarked but was acid tested for sterling. It weighs 9.7 grams. Two little marcasite stones are out but are easily replaced.
Overall in very good antique condition. Circa 1900s.
