    I call this "bubbles" pattern enamel martelé, aka hammered enamel.

    I don't know if it is the right name for it :-)

    James Fenton used it often in Arts and Crafts Era jewelry.

    Back of the pin is enameled too, in plain blue.
    This strengthen the piece.

    Unmarked silver, 4.8cm wingspan.

    Very little kyratisation :-))

      Very neat.....I recently caught a photo of a very similar colored one, your pin has "Real" life colors to it. It drew my attention as very neat piece, but when compared to photo, really loved seeing it. Thanks for sharing

      Warning, described as ANTIQUE suffragette, in antique vintage category!

      Only alert to the wise customer is saying "Typical classic Art Nouveau Design", and the fact there is no pics of the back...

      Lots of fraudulent appealing new pieces as this one in this seller's auctions!
