A fine example of Arts & Crafts sterling by Stavre Gregor Panis*.
The slightly domed sterling pin uses repousse, piercing and chasing to create the intricate floral design.
All the work was done by hand and beautifully executed.
The pin measures 1&5/8" in diameter and weighs a solid 10 grams.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear, nicely aged patina and secure safety catch.
Signed sterling with the SGP logo in a soft triangle.
A lovely and hard to find Arts & Crafts sterling pin by an accomplished artist.
