This was also purchased from Live Auctioneers along with the few other pieces I posted on Sunday. I am not a huge fan of bar pins if they don't have a C clasp... So when this one showed up I was a little annoyed (the auction didn't have the picture of the back). I still think it's pretty. Your thoughts?
Originally called Maison David, it was located in US & France. The company was then bought out by Solomon Freirich in 1922. Name remained Maison David in France, but changed to Freirich in US. The company made hat and dress ornaments; buttons for Chanel & Dior. Excellent quality, all handmade jewelry in an antique, Victorian look. They began marking their jewelry in 1960's. The company closed in 1990
