Vintage Retro Modern Modernist Sterling Silver Pin by Lang - Pan Playing Pipes to Bird in Cage
Dating to the 1950s or so, may I offer this 2 part pin of silver by Lang. One pin depicts a Pan figure blowing on his pipes and the other pin is a caged songbird listening to the tune. Joining both pins together is a double length of chain (yeah, Ruby Lane decided to make some of the chain disappear in my larger photo). Both pins feature safety catches to hold the pinstem in place. Condition is very nice with no problems I can spot. Dark patina to the silver - I have not polished.
Metal Content: Sterling Silver with Hallmarks on both pins that feature a rectangular tag with the Swan Hallmark as well as STERLING LANG.
Size: Larger cage pin is 2-1/8" high x 1-1/4"; smaller is 1-13/16" x 1-1/4". Smaller length of chain is a little over 5-1/4".
Weight: 14.7 grams combined
Final Comments: A hard pair to find in original condition and not separated! Pricing for the caged bird runs around $30 - I have not seen a price for Pan.
