Extremely scarce Art Nouveau / Victorian brooch made by Unger Bros of Newark, New Jersey. The pin is very dimensional and features a girl in a bonnet with a large bow under her chin holding an open lorgnette with the lenses resting on her nose. I've been an Unger collector for many years and have never seen this pin for sale. This piece is pictured on page 133 in the 1904 Unger Bros. Catalogue Reprint. It comes out of my personal collection.
The back is clearly marked with the Unger logo with the words STERLING 925 FINE circling the logo and COPY RIGHT 1904
The pin retains the original "c" catch closure
Measures: 2" long x 1 1/2" wide x 5/8" deep
Fabulous condition with the tiniest bit of wear on the edge of the bonnet. The piece has not been cleaned and retains its original antique patina.
A very special piece for an Unger Bros collection
