This pretty little French Art Nouveau pin was intended for a baby or doll. It tests as 800-900 silver quality.
It measures 1 and 7/16” (3.7cms) by 7/16” (1.1cms) and weighs 1.4 grams.
Along the centre is ‘BEBE’ in raised lettering. On either side are little flowers. All around the border are mistletoe leaves and berries. Mistletoe was a favourite motif of the Art Nouveau period.
The reverse is plain silver. There is an old style c clip with an early safety device. The clip bears a hallmark which looks like the boar’s head for 800-900 silver.
This charming pin is in fine antique condition and will arrive in a gift box
