This clever vintage abalone and brass bar pin has the form of a miniature belt with brass buckle, tongue, and "holes".
The curving design is 2 1/8" long by about 1/2" high at the buckle. The abalone has exceptional coloring with iridescent purple, blue, mocha, pink, and green hues.
The brass elements are securely riveted through the abalone into the brass plate beneath. It is stamped "Ges. Gesch AH" which designates a designed registered to the maker AH.
The pin has a safety clasp. Condition is very fine.
