Beautiful early hand carved on shell bouquet of roses pin/pendant with an 800 silver vermeil frame. More than likely Italian, the detail is fabulous and the flowers are nearly white, with a unique blush of color to the center rose. The background is a medium peachy pink and compliments the lovely design. A vermeil finish on the frame is coppery in color with its acquired patina to further enhance this beauty. No two carvings are alike, and this is a fabulous example.
Measures 1 1/2" x 1 1/8", not including the loop on the back. The 800 mark is there, but not completely legible.
Wonderful vintage condition. Ca. 1930's. There is a slight stress fracture at the 2:00 position. It does not go all the way through to the back, and is not noticed at normal viewing.
Perfect for a personal collection or to give as a gift.
