Weighing 7.7 grams, this darling, sterling silver pin features a marcasite stone-drenched dachshund pup. It has a bezel-set, red stone eye that could be a garnet, but has not been tested.
This pin measures 1.75" long and 1.25" wide. It is stamped 925 for sterling silver on the back.
Circa 1940-60s, this pin is in excellent condition, with a heavy sterling patina and light wear from previous use. All of the stones are intact and there is a secure, safety clasp on the back. We have left its original sterling patina intact for the buyer.
Dress it up or dress it down, this pin is a lot of dog-gone fun.
