A fancy vintage hairpin with a gold colored finish and jeweled tip. The older style of pin which flares out at the base was used to hold longer tresses. This is topped with an emerald green rhinestone on the ball head.
We did not see any type of stamping to indicate manufacturer. We would place this, at the latest, the first decade of the 20th Century before shorter hair styles of the 1920s.
Measures just a smidgen over 2 1/2 inches long. There is a bit of discoloring on the gold finish, we did not attempt to clean it.
