This is an absolutely stunning piece by - Aikin, Lambert & Co., marked ALCo, Made In France. The rhinestones sparkle like diamonds, seriously! All stones are present and have their own unique cut, high peaked and brilliant in their reflection. There is no way to photo capture the spectacular animation this piece offers.

ALCo was well known for their high end, ornate gold and silver fountain pens, which are highly collectible; they also produced charms, novelty items, watches and jewelry.

I don't know the metal content of this piece, but it is not magnetic and polishes like silver. It's not pot metal.

Measures approx. 2 inches wide by 1.5 inches high.

I'm estimating the age at 1870's to 1900's, based on the information I was able to find on the history of the company here, starting on page 177, tiny url for convenience, cut and paste: http://tinyurl.com/3oaqf98

If that url does not work, I'd be happy to send the information I have for your review, just use the conversation link to request.

The company was based in New York and I am having a difficult time finding information on the French origins of this piece; perhaps they sourced the work out.

Beautiful condition, but it IS an antique so expect to see signs of age.

A perfect addition for high end bridal as a sash, bouquet or gown accessory. This piece will make your ball gown a smashing success!!!
