German Sterling, Carnelian and Marcasite Pin - Circa 1930German Sterling, Carnelian and Marcasite Pin - Circa 1930German Sterling, Carnelian and Marcasite Pin - Circa 1930

This pin is delightful with it's somewhat fan like shape and multiple patterns. Note the large open work areas with a zig zag border on one side and a floral pattern on the other. Both the zig zag and floral work are accented with approx. four sizes of marcasites. At the center base of the fan is an approx 15/16" x 5/16" rectangular faceted carnelian stone mounted in a mil-grained collar.

The sterling is in excellent condition with no rips, dents, cracks, holes, nasty scratches, abrasions or repairs. The pin hinge, pin stick and clasp all appear to be the originals and are in smooth working order. The pin stick has just a hint of wave and a good point.

The marcasites are prong and ball mounted and all appear to be there with none standing out as replacements. The carnelian rectangle is also excellent with no cracks, chips, nicks, nasty scratches or abrasions and is a lovely, rich, brick color.

The marks are on the backside as seen in the photo and read "GERMANY" and "STERLING". The pin measures 1 3/4" long x 7/8 at tallest point (center of pin). A great vintage pin in excellent condition at a budget friendly price.
