This pretty Edwardian fligree flower hair pin dates from about 1910 It now has a patinted appearance that has worn to that lovely indeterminate shade between silver and gold. The centre is still definitely gold plated. The filigree flower part looks from the back as if it were once silver plated . On the front around the edges of the filgree petals and particularly the central ones they definitely have a coppery look where the silver plating must have rubbed off over time.
It is hinged, rotates very freely over 180degrees and is not fixed.

The pin part measures 3-1/8ins ( 8cm) long.The flower section is about 1.3/8ths ins (3.4cm)wide measuring across.The central gold plated bead is about 4mm diameter. There are some very small cuts on this part indicated in photo 4 and by red X in photo5.These faults are very minor and I did not really notice them until editing.
Generally this item is still in good condition and would be perfect accessory for incorporating into a formal hairstyle or bridal updo hair style/ headpiece.Maybe ideal for that necessary "something old " item

As a proud member of the British Sellers on Etsy Team, I and my fellow team mates wish to protest about the massive increase in Royal Mail postal charges effective from 30th April 2012 which has been forced upon us.

Thank you for looking.
