An antique hat pin featuring a faux pearl medallion center. Around the center stone we see prong set amethyst and clear crystal stones in an open setting. The rim is decorative and has a gilt brass finish to match the rest of pin head.
We did not find any markings to assist us in who manufactured this lovely piece. We would place it in the late 1890s to just turn of the 20th Century.
Measuring a nice long 9.25" we find the faux pearl medallion to have a few marks on it. There is age patina to the metal which is typical. This would look fabulous with a wide brimmed hat.
