Here is a sweet little brooch or pin. It has great detail and is so very charming. The basket holds textured leaves and a cultured pearl flower. The basket is set with marcasites and has a pretty curved twisted handle.
The back of the pin is marked "925 A" for sterling. We do not know the meaning of the letter mark although it may be for the maker. There is a roll over safety clasp closure mechanism.
Although small in size, measuring just 1"H x 1"W, this piece is large in appeal! It weighs 4.2 grams or 0.15 ounces and is in very good condition with a nice patina. We will leave any polishing decision to the future owner.
