It is so much fun to come upon a nice guilloche enamel pin and to then begin to reveal information about its origins and past.
This is a beautiful blue detailed enamel pin with a center seed pearl. It is 2 1/4" long and 3/16" wide with nice side detail. It weighs 3.2 grams.
On the underside is a inscription that holds the piece as a Christmas present in 1924.
The hallmark has it as a Carter & Howe, Newark, NJ manufacturer. And guarantees the fineness as 14K.
It was obtained at a Litchfield, CT estate. So much can be known about this special little pin.
