Magnificent Victorian period photo pin.
The front has a lovely posed photo of a sweet young girl dressed in frilly whites.
The locket box back has two artificial flowers.
With the pin stem open the center pivots so the underside can be worn with the flowers showing.
The frame and glass lift off from either the flower side or the photo side to reveal the deep compartment.
The double tube frame crosses over and under itself, it is embellished with engraved leaves on the top and bottom.
The pin stem exceeds the width of the pin, a testament to its age.
Measures 2.5" by 2.25", the locket compartment is 1&5/8" by 1&3/8".
All original with both slightly domed glass covers, excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear.
An exceptional and rare antique pivoting photo pin!
