A fabulous antique pin with a most beautiful enamel of an elegant beauty.
The woman has milky white skin with a slight blush.
Her soft brown hair is swept to one side exposing her long neck and shoulder.
The background enamel uses foil under the enamel to create an iridescence.
The setting is brass, the top has a vine set with a single green paste in the center and two purple ones between the leaves.
Measures 2" by 1.5".
It has a C clasp and hinged tube pin stem.
Overall condition is excellent, there are four fine line cracks in the enamel, they are not distracting, there is no enamel loss.
An extraordinary early Victorian enamel pin.
