Antique Victorian to Edwardian Axe Pin Brooch - Carrie Carry A Nation Hatchet Temperence
This gorgeous Victorian era brooch is done in a rose gold colored metal with a figural medieval battle ax design. It measures about 2 7/16" by just shy of 7/8" across at the blade. It has the old tube hinged pinstem and the type of clasp that looks like the head of a safety pin. Good antique condition with age appropriate wear and there is a little wear at the top tip of the blade as shown - not something that would be noticeable when worn. A knowledgeable fellow Ruby Laner told us that this is most probably a piece made in reference to the famous (or infamous) temperance leader Carrie or Carry Nation who was known to throw stones or use a hatchet to destroy bars. I think this would be great for the firefighter. You will treasure this!!!
