This delightful, Saint Esprit or Holy Spirit dove pin comes from Northern France. It bears a boar’s head , French hallmark for 800-900 quality silver.I am dating it to the early to the late 19th century. These were usually worn on a velvet band at the neck.

It measures 1 and ¾” (4.5cms)long by 1 and 1/8” (2.8cms) across the widest part. It weighs 9.6 grams.

It is articulated into two sections. At the top is a pierced halo set with glittering marcasites. Within it is a bow feature with a larger, pink paste. Hanging from it is the delicately formed dove encrusted with more marcasites. In his beak the dove holds a branch with small coloured pastes.

The back is smoothly finished and closed at the back , an indication of an older piece. There is an old style c clip marked with two swans , used from 1893. The lower section bears a maker’s mark.

This wonderful antique Saint Esprit is in great condition with all the stones in place. It comes to you carefully presented in a gift box.
