They just don't make 'em like they used to. A beautiful, intricate pin like this one is what got my friends and I started in collecting vintage jewelry many years ago. (Okay...it was decades ago but who's counting.)
This large pin borders on the years between the Victorian era and the Art Deco era...circa 1920s. This white metal filigree pin was 'just costume jewelry' but it was made with all the artistry and attention you'd put into making fine jewelry. Cobalt blue rhinestones are placed around the edge. Center flower shapes are also made with blue rhinestones and silvered petals. The shape of the pin is fan-like. It's ornate with a tight filigree design. It's heavy, weighing 43 grams.
The pin measures 2 1/2 inches across by 3 inches high. The back has a secure rollover clasp. It's in excellent vintage condition with normal age-related patina that has not been polished and probably looks best as it is. No notable flaws.
It's pins like this one that got us started. It's still pins like this that keep us intrigued, collecting, and looking for more.
