Beautifully detailed Victorian pin with real pearl drop. It is unsigned, but has many of the design elements associated with George Steere GNS& Co. jewelry. However, I have not been able to substantiate that. It is extremely well made, and has fantasy creatures with red cabochon eyes. I am not sure if they are birds or serpents, but they are wonderful, whatever they are! The center has a mottled faux turquoise cabochon.
It appears to be gilt brass and has the old c-clasp closure. It is in excellent condition, looks like it was never worn.
Although on the smaller side, it is big on beauty. It measures 1.5 x 1 inches.
