Mikimoto collectors might like to add this very old but demure, sterling silver hallmarked pin to their collection.
It measures 1.5" long by 1" high and has 5 of the loveliest, shiny 5mm- 6mm cultured pearls I've seen in a while. Not that that is surprising: after all, it is Mikimoto!
In a beautiful leaf-like design of nicely etched sterling silver, slim silver spokes lead the eye upwards toward the pale ivory cultured pearls which have lost none of their nacre or sheen over the years. The silver could use a bit of polishing to bring it back to its original lustre.
The pin at the back closes very securely with a fold-over clasp, and as one can see in the photos, the Mikimoto M in a rather worn, but still recognizable clamshell, plus an S for sterling, is stamped into the back of the pin.
This one will look lovely on a jacket or pinned into a hat or just on your dress. Of course, if you buy Mikimoto only to collect, well that's okay too. We've priced it to sell but your offers are welcomed.
