A very pretty antique Victorian era Hatpin. The Hatpin is European in origin and is made from mixed metal in a Damascene fashion, this technique was used in Spain and the Middle East. It is gun metal on the back and has inlay on the front, the Moon shaped pierced design has a Moorish influence. The decorative top measures 1 1/8" in diameter x 1/4" deep and the hatpin is 3 3/8" long overall. The Damascene Hatpin is in very good overall condition. The only thing to note is light rust on the back, see photos. The Hatpin would be perfect in a Vanity or Millinery collection.
