I can’t tell you too much about this gorgeous, cherub’s head pin. However it is marked ‘Alva’ which I understand was a company which produced museum replicas. This does look like a Victorian or maybe Georgian cherub.
It measures 2 and 1/8” (5.5cms) across the wingspan and 1 and 3/16” (3cms) vertically. It weighs a substantial 14 grams.
The pin is made of gilded brass. The cherub and his wings are really beautifully sculpted with great attention to detail.
The reverse is delicately engraved with swirls . At the base is the inscription ’Alva’ with the copyright symbol. There is a fully functional safety clasp.
This delightful piece is in fine vintage condition and will arrive in a gift box.
