This charming French Pin tests as 800-900 silver quality. I am dating it to circa 1910.
It measures 1 and 5/16” (3.5cms) by 1”(2.5cms) across, It weighs 5.8 grams.
It has a wonderful repoussé design of scrolling fleur de lis. In the centre is a shield left blank for a monogram. The edge is tiered and beautifully shaped with a fine decoration.
On the back is a typically French trombone clasp which functions perfectly. At the base is a roundel with the inscription ‘Toujours Fidele’ – Always Faithful.
This delightful piece is in fine antique condition and would make a lovely gift. It will arrive in a gift box.
