My last beasty pin :-)
2" wing span, 1.1/8 from beak to tail tip.
80 rose cut diamonds, 2 tiny ruby eyes, silver open setting on gold backing.
Hole at the reverse to screw fittings!
I bought it for 1950 georgian revival, (!!!), gold was very blackened, it had a 14k brooch fitting custom made around 1920 (from the security clasp...).
Through hunting years I gathered several screw systems from antique versatile parures, and I had the perfect trembler hair pin for it!
I hope you will love him as much as I do, thanks for looking :-)
