This is such a lovely example of whimsical Victorian silver-work! This is an antique sterling silver pin-brooch with lovely applied details that give it such personality. It is stamped on the reverse with hallmarks that identify it as originating from Birmingham in the 1890’s (1897) and that it is sterling silver. It is a fancy bar pin with dimensional flower design in the center that is accented with applied gold details for contrast. Overall length of the pin is 1 3/4-inches (44.6 mm) and width is 9/16-inch (16 mm). Reverse has a traditional pin assembly with C-catch that is appropriate for its age. Condition is near perfect.
Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in All of my vintage items are all previously worn and loved and so are sold as is. I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a certified GIA gemologist. I do my best to accurately describe items and am confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc. I use the term “delicate” in many of my listings which I interpret to mean small or dainty. If the ring or item requires extra care when worn, usually I use “fragile” or “wear with care”. Most pieces have been lightly polished or cleaned, if possible, unless the process will damage or alter their natural patina. Some items can be altered, some cannot, so please feel free to ask questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can. Please keep in mind that custom-altered pieces are non-returnable.
