These sash pins were the rage and were worn at the waist. They were made out of every material, plain and fancy. This one is silver plated over brass. The silver plate has worn on the high spots which has left an interesting look to it. The scrolled design around the pin has round "berries" which are higher than the rest of the design and consequently are now a brassy color. The silver plate has worn off and added another color to the design. There is also a bit of silver plate loss on the simulated hasp's high point as well.
The sash pin is 3" wide and 2 1/8" high. It has scratched in initials on the back of E. H. which might have been a previous owner's rather than a maker. It has an open C clasp with good tension to it and the pin is somewhat tweaked out of shape but works well. There is some patina on the front which I did not touch. Overall, it is in good condition.
