A tiny sterling Bebe pin (spelled out all in capital letters) with very pretty sharp floral details on either side, looks almost like poinsettia flowers. This one is smaller than what I usually find and measures only 1 1/4" x 1/4" at the widest part. It has an usual clasp to the reverse that does not hold very well, but it works fine without using it.
I could not find a marking for the metal content but it tests positive for sterling. It is in good antique condition with minimal wear to the metal and the pin is a little loose which is common; it holds fine on a garment. It is perfect for smaller dolls, you see it modeled in the last photo by one of my 22" dolls (not included) and it's too big for her; more appropriate for 16" or a little smaller even.
French in origin, I would say turn of the last century.
