This is an absolutely fantastic early pair of pins which are made of sterling silver and hallmarked as such. The pins are exquisitely detailed and have a gold vermeil. Both pins are solid and rather hefty in weight.
The man and woman pirates are both fully decked out in their pirate garb. The woman pirate has her sword over her head as if she may strike at any given moment. She has on boots with a skirt and features blue rhinestone eyes.
The man pirate has the same pair of pirate boots. his sword is resting at his knees. He is also decked out in his pirate outfit and has a typical pirate hat on. His lone rhinestone EYE is also blue. He must have lost the other in a wicked fight at some point in his life. A sterling patch is over the missing eye.
This is just a really fabulous piece! Each pin measures 1 7/8" by 1 1/4" wide. They are each hallmarked STERLING. The sterling chain which attaches each pirate measures 3 5/8" long. Condition is VERY GOOD!
This appears to be a 1940's CORO design but I have been unable to locate the exact patent for it.
