Superb Antique Arts & Crafts Sterling Silver Turquoise Natural Pearl Sash Pin
Superb, completely hard crafted Arts & Crafts 1895-1950 sash pin, in sterling silver with a turquoise stone centerpiece, flanked by three natural pearls. Every single aspect of this brooch is hand made, including the hinge, the pin stem, and the C clasp.
The curvilinear design attests to the Art Nouveau era origin, while the use of sterling rather than gold, and its painstaking tiny hand hammered marks attest also to its Arts and Crafts era origin. These two design eras co-existed during the same years, 1900-1910.
Measures 4 3/8 inches by 1 5/8 inches and weighs a heavy 29 grams. It is unmarked for sterling, but tested as such. It is in excellent antique condition with moderate patina.
