Story

Whether for display or wear, this fabulous silver gilt hair pin is an elegant accessory to collect. The hairstyles of the period were typically upswept with twists and turns, placed into a knot, and finished with a hair pin or comb.

An array of fifty (50) natural salmon-hued coral beads, ranging in size from just shy of 8 mm to 3 mm have been arranged into a tiara-like crown. With the ornament set upon an arched convex frame of serrated metal work a hinge mechanism attaches a double prong pin of natural tortoiseshell of luscious chocolate brown and caramel coloration.

Date: Circa 1890.
