here we have a most precious treasure that hails to the Victorian era. It features individually carved pieces of coral held in place by tiny pieces of gold fill wire. Tiny flowers and leaves are anchored to a single coral branch unfortunately there are a few pieces missing.
The Victorians are known for their love of sentiment and hidden meanings. This pin is crafted with a tiny fly tucked into flowers to convey a message of Knowledge Of Secrets. You can only wonder if it harbored thoughts of an unfaithful love or forbidden romance.
The pin measures 1/1/2'' x 1-1/8''. It can be worn as is or used as a project piece.
