  1. I am mad for sterling overlay hatpin holders and almost exclusively collect them for my hatpin displays. This might be the loveliest I've ever seen.
  2. Really, really lovely. I have hatpin envy!!!
  3. Really lovely collection of green glass hatpins. Green isn't all that commonly found so these are special.
  4. Very interesting piece, lovely in fact but it is a stick or lapel pin rather than a hatpin.
  5. read your post on the hatpin collectors message board and used the links you provided to come see your photos. You have some really nice hatpins and I like the way you have displayed them as well. I...
  6. What an interesting find. The date is certainly correct. The hatpin would date anywhere from 1890-1920. You could try polishing it up but I will say there isn't much value to the hatpin as-is. Loo...
  7. This is a hand blown piece of glass that was painted inside with a metallic mixture to make the glass appear as goldstone...Victorians were experts at faking materials. Overtime the mixture has pulle...
  8. There are stickpin holders available for displaying your pieces. Just be careful of you want authentic antique pieces because they are being reproduced. The repros sell for $5.00 to $15.00. They a...
  9. Your French plique-a-jour hatpin is STUNNING. You SHOULD regret not buying the other! If you ever feel like you don't want this anymore, contact me!!! Holly ;-)
  10. The nodder hatpins are pre-WWI; about 1905-1915 are dates that line up with the catalogues I have that feature them.
  11. I prefer enamel work as well...these are quite beautiful. I'd wear them!
  12. It is a hatpin but is also a modern-made hatpin. Antique hatpins were not constructed as this, with two ornaments stacked on a pinstem. The size though makes this useful today whereas a lot of the a...
  13. I also see some fake hatpins in the collection. The white frosted glass hatpin, the large metal setting with six petals with the art glass stone and the daisy with the pink stone are all "Billy-Bob" ...
  14. She is stunning...almost enough to make me want to begin a collection but alas, I shall stick with my hatpins. You are lucky indeed to have her!
  15. These are stickpins and were worn by both men and women to decorate their lapels, ties, scarves, etc. They fell out-of-fashion by the mid-1970s. Collectors typically look to the more vintage and eve...
  16. Hatpins done in the style and length as yours come from Victorian-era/Edwardian-era or specifically from the 1880-1925 time period. I could pinpoint them further to the 1890s-1920 era. Most antiqu...
  17. They are pretty, but they most likely are modern-made hatpins. They ornaments look like 1950-60s earring or brooch pieces rather than as authentic Victorian or Edwardian-era jewelry. One of your hatp...
  18. Love your display cabinet full of hatpins and Hatpin holders! I have a LOT of hatpins, having collected now for over twenty years. My favorite hatpins are the tremblers and the one's with large blue ...
