Antique Camphor Glass Angel and Star Winged Child Pin
Extremely rare and highly desirable cherub angel pin from the turn of the century. These are also referred to as children pins with angelic wings and topped with a star. This pin is 1.75 inch across and has a security chain with a tie pin attached, no doubt being a man's piece of jewelry in the day. The glass is highly detailed and has the look of moonstone with various pastel colors. The setting is gold-filled and the chain may be as well, or could be solid (we have not tested it since the value of such a pin does not lie in the gold value). The tie pin shaft appears to be sterling, whereas the bead top looks like solid gold. The only flaw in this pin is that the pin is missing. The hinge portion is still in tact and could easily be restored, or it could also be used as a pendant.
