The pin, though gold-colored, is not gold but possibly pinchbeck or bronze.The leaves are enameled in a deep mossy green. Pinchbeck is a form of brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, mixed in proportions so that it closely resembles gold in appearance. The metal was invented in the 1700s by Christopher Pinchbeck, a London clockmaker.
Condition: Good/vintage with 1 tiny bruise to the enamel (bottom right) very difficult to see but mentioned for accuracy and minor surface scratches consistent with a used item.
This is an unusual little pin that has a lot of personality. It has more of a "voice" than the pictures can do justice. So, get this darling collectible pin for the Leprechaun you love in your life.
