Enamel & brass hatpin
Beautiful enamel and brass hat pin. At the centre of this item is a large (8mm) amethyst coloured crystal cabochon stone, all based on a plaque of beautifully worked brass. There are two rims of blue/black (sorry, I can't make out which) enamel. the outer rim of enamel has some very slight chipping but this does not detract from the piece. The brass has been gold-plated to ensure that no strenuous cleaning is required. This was probably made for the French market and oozes quality. Measures 3.6cm, with a 25cm long pin.
