An outstanding antique pin from the Victorian period. The ornate filigree is beautifully executed in 18k yellow gold. The design uses very fine twisted wire in ornate curls. The design of the bowl, flowers and petals are made from gold sheet applied over the wire. The twisted wire provides great texture and contrast to the smooth, shiny finish of the sheet. The workmanship in this early Victorian piece is superb.
The condition is excellent, no damage or wear. It measures 1&7/8" by 1&5/8" and weighs 11.2 grams. It has the old style C clasp and riveted pin stem. Marked 750 for 18k and has a hallmark of 13 CA. I have not been able to identify the mark. A fabulous fine quality antique pin. Please view the large photos for best detail.
