This is a magnificent pin done in an Arts and Crafts style – hand wrought with expert workmanship and an iconic Craftsman’s era subject – the Oak leaf. This beauty has many of the characteristics of jewelry created by Gilbert Oakes, the son of Edward Everett Oakes, in Boston. Only a small amount of the Oakes’ work was signed and this pin is also completely unmarked. However, it has typical Oakes design traits: fine spiraling wire work, hand hammered oak leaves with applied veins, and hand hammered copper acorn end caps. In addition, Gilbert Oakes often used a large central leaf as a theme in his pins. Of course, I cannot be sure it is a Gilbert Oakes, but it is very much in the style of his known pieces. Large and important, this pin measures 4 ½ inches long and 1 ½ inches wide. The condition is excellent with a lovely patina. This marvelous and rare pin is a showstopper; when worn on a jacket or dress it will draw admiring glances. $145.00
