This impressive pin bears no marks but tests as 900 quality silver. It is ornamented with marcasites and natural half pearl. My best guess is that it was made in Germany and is most certainly European. I believe that it dates to the mid 20th century.
The gently curved, rectangular pin measures 2 1/4” (5.8cms) wide by 1 and 1/8” (2.3cms) across and weighs 17.4 grams so is very substantial.
The pin is pierced for maximum effect , drawing attention to pretty motifs. There are sweet bows and floral embellishments. All these elements are studded with sparkling marcasites. In the centre is the lustrous pearl 9mms across.
The reverse is neatly finished and there is a fully functional safety clasp.
In excellent vintage condition, this really beautiful pin,will arrive in a gift box.
