ANTIQUE EDWARDIAN Gold Filled, Natural Pearl & Garnet Hat Pin Top - Flying Swallow

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: C.1900 or so

ITEM: From France and an absolute delight to behold! I believe what you are looking at is the top section to a hat pin that either NEVER was put on a pin stem or was taken off a pin stem. Of bright, bright yellow gold, the pin has no markings but I believe the piece was made by one of the major gold filled companies in France, either FIX, MURAT, ORIA or ULTRA. In a round shape, the design is a simple one but a classic one in France - that of a swallow or hirondelle! With a garnet cab set as the eye, the wings of the bird feature natural pearls while one single LARGER natural pearl sits on the inside rim.

CONDITION: Perfect! The back of the piece has a dark silver round dot - I don't know quite what it was meant for but the piece might have been attached to a larger backing if indeed this piece was a hat pin.

METAL CONTENT: 18K Gold Filled with perhaps a GENUINE 18K Gold overlay to the top.

HALLMARKS: None that I can find.

SIZE: 15/16" high x 7/8" wide

WEIGHT: 2.2 grams

FINAL COMMENTS: Add a new pin stem and wear as a lapel pin. Add a drop to the bottom, add a bale/jump ring and wear as a pendant. This piece is just so beautiful!
