Caroline's Jewelry with a Past is offering a sterling silver Victorian era figural stick pin circa 1880. This stick pin features a sterling silver turtle. The turtle is very dimensional on the front. Figural stick pins were widely popular in jewelry during the 1860-1900's. The mouse is 5/8" tall X 1/2" wide (maximum dimensions). The entire length is 2-1/8" overall. The stick is marked "Sterling". The piece weighs 1.0 grams. The turtle is hollow backed.
Victorians used everything as symbols. Turtles are used to represent creation, order and protection. They have been used for centuries to represent longevity.
The silver content of this piece has been tested using standard accepted testing methods, such as acid testing. The piece is marked "Sterling". The jewelry will show age appropriate tarnish, unless we state otherwise.
