Vintage SILVER GILT Pins - Grey Shell, Middle East, Sweater Pins

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: I am guessing the 1950s BUT this design was very popular during the Victorian era so these pieces may be just that old.

ITEM: A pair of pins, joined together with a bit of chain, most likely from the Middle East. The pins are silver gilt - silver covered with a heavy layer of gold (vermeil). The center section of the pins is a silver/grey, very iridescent shell (Mabe Pearl? Blister Pearl?), oval in shape with a HIGH shine! Simple c-catch at the back to hold the pinstem in place.

CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot.

METAL CONTENT: Being of Mid East origin, the silver content can be anywhere from 800 to 970.

HALLMARKS: None that I can find. Most likely the silver content was on the original packaging that came with the pins. Metal has been VERY lightly acid tested and does test as silver though the exact content is indeterminate.

SIZE: Each pin measures 1-11/16" x 1". The chain length measures 6-3/4".

WEIGHT: 20 grams combined

FINAL COMMENTS: Very, very nice!
