This Etruscan revival bar pin evokes nostalgia of ancient times long past. Whimsical when made, or stylish today. Greek lettering and hand-engraved architectural accents adorn the top section, from which hang three Homeric medallion cameos that look like ancient coins. An Etruscan pin made with such skill and care deserves a place in your collection.
Pin is marked STERLING, numbered 589, and signed by G. W. Shiebler & Co. of New York (1867-1915). Measures just over 3" (75mm) long. 17.1 grams.
