On my hunt for antique jewelry special I got this special find a stick pin that is made of cast iron probably around 1813-1815.
As I described in my article about Cast iron jewelry should meet the following requirements:
Feels cold • Light in weight • Components of jewelry are not welded but sit with rings together • The stem is extremely long and brooches has c-clasps • The c-clasp and hinge are fixed by means of rings • Has sharp edges • Has no blurry edges • The surface must be fine–grained. Lacquered grey/ black and last but not least must be magnetic.
This pin is 6.5 cm long and weighs very light but 1 gram. I discovered this rare jewel at a nice Romanian seller of antiques. I am delighted this particular discovery as you will understand!
