Vintage FRENCH Gold Filled Baby Pin - Raphael's Cupid/Angel/Cherub

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: C.1915 or so

ITEM: An adorable Art Deco era baby pin/bar pin from France, made of a gold filled materal, which features a small charm with a depiction (by Raphael) of a young cherubic angel - cherub or fairy. Simple c-catch closure at the back.

CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.

METAL CONTENT: French gold filled items (under the trade names of FIX, ORIA, TEXTRA & MURAT) were commonly known as the French version of English pinchbeck. This is a metal combination that has the look/appearance of 18K gold but has a rose gold underlay. If the yellow gold wears, the rose gold appears giving the pin the most unusual color combination. However, the yellow gold layer was usually so thick that this usually never happened. Some dealers argue that metal is a gold filled material, while others will say it's a high gold overlay over a secret formula base. Whatever anyone decides, it is what it is - a piece of jewelry that has already lasted for many, many years with no dark spots!

HALLMARKS: ORIA on the back - the maker of this particular pin.

SIZE: Bar pin measures 1-7/16" x 1/8" wide approx.; medal measures 3/8" high/wide.

WEIGHT: 1.7 grams

FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for the newborn or your favorite doll!
