Bone china flower pin 1 1/2" and clip earrings, 1" across. Marked "Made in England" on the gold-tone metal pin back and earring backs. Circa 1960 - 1965.
These pins were formed by hand with fine paste porcelain, then hand painted and glazed. No to are exactly alike. This set has a pink rose, pansies or violas and tiny blue forget-me-nots.
These pins are easily damaged in a jewelry box, but this set seems to be in remarkably good condition. Please see all the photos. I have examined these pieces under magnification. There are a few edge areas that may be worn and some very minor imperfections, but I find no obvious chips or missing petals. The gold-tone backs show no wear.
Included is a sturdy burgundy velvet box for safekeeping (not original to the set) - I hope this set will be enjoyed for another 50 years!
