We are pleased to offer this Vintage White Agate Book Fob attached with Two Double Stick Pins. I don't very often sell things that I'm not completely sure of their use . I have owned this piece of some time now. I have book searched it, I have internet searched it. I'm quite certain some smart person out there knows exactly what it is, please let me know. All of this said I think it's a hatpin. It could have been used as some sort of watch fob by a man. My guess is that a woman would use the pins to put through a hat in a crossed fashion. The pins are "twisted in the center, meaning that they did not need end caps like some pins this length. The fob moves freely along the chain. Please note the photos. Perhaps this agate book shaped fob was some teachers or librarians favorite pin?? The fob could be separated from the pins and used on a neck chain or bracelet.
DIMENSIONS: 4 ½" in length, fob is ¾" x ½"
CONDITION: ready for you to use and enjoy
