Description

It's an unusual Victorian bar pin made on a long oval with a tortoise shell look. The pin has been hand painted with leaves and has an applied "flower" or "urn" in pink. There is a vintage "c" clasp on the back in perfect working order. The pin is 3" long and just over 1/4" wide. It is in excellent condition. From my research, this pin would havevbeen made before 1900. I tested for bakelite, but it did not prove to be bakelite. However, it is certainly a very early plastic. It is lovely, usable and collectible!


Thanks to Va Voom Vintage for information on Bakelite pins http://www.vavoomvintage.net/
