    This little fellow bears the marks for Meyle & Mayer.
    Stamped "Depose", "sterling" and the Mayle & Mayer maker's mark of a dragonfly, 22cm steel pin, 4cm large, 3cm long.
    Had it for a loong time without notifying the dragonfly stamp at the very bottom of the abdomen
    When I bought it, there was a second one, pin attach broken, which I
    don't bought ... Bitterly regret, Sight...

      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!!!

      This is a lovely, lovely bee. You can see the fantastic quality from underneath. I would so happily have him in my collection. He's also pictured in the Jugendstil-Schmuck book in a fantastic red, blue & yellow combo. Try not to feel too bad about overlooking the other one, he's a real treasure.

      Just saw this dragonfly, 161285175655 item
      Don't you think it is a shame to clean as much an remove all the patina?
    13. Jewels1900 Jewels1900, 7 years ago
      Looks like that poor little chap has been dipped. Hate dipping.
    14. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      You're right!!! Dipping & rhodium plating on silver diamond 19th jewels! Grrr.

      Totally agree with you idcloisonne! But be careful not to wash paste or rhinestone jewellery (1920 silver costume jewelry) wich is not open back !
      Thanks to you, Virginia.vintage and MrsWarren for your loves and warm comments :-)

      I identified Meyle Mayer pinch very recently, by seeing other items on the net...
      The same hat pin without name in the description sold on swiss EBay for 1200$ One or two years ago :-)
      Many thanks for your input !

      Just found and kyratised this old all BRASS unsigned bumblebee brooch... So much similarities in shape, size and construction make me sure it is made by Meyle and Mayer...
