ANTIQUE VICTORIAN Mourning Pin - Black, Gutta Percha, Dove, Florals, 2 Tier
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: Out of my personal collection, here's a mourning piece I was keeping for myself. Why? Well, because it's subject matter you just don't find anymore - a Mourning Dove standing upon a small garland of florals. The center piece is set upon an oval base which, itself, has an border of florals. Simple c-catch at the back to hold the pin in place.
CONDITION: Excellent! Pieces like this tended to suffer mishaps through the years but this one has no wear and no broken beak - yep, it's as sharp as the day it was cast!
SIZE: 1-15/16" x 1-5/8". Depth is about 3/4".
FINAL COMMENTS: I sure won't find a pin like this anytime too soon. It's just a wonderful piece of mourning jewelry from the past!
