    I found this pin at the El Cajon, CA Salvation Army thrift store, very black - I think it was a dollar. (Gudrun, thinking about your post) The mark says VR 830S (or VP 930S).

    Did some research and marks could be related to Georg Jensen silver but I searched online and didn't find this particular style. The back is oxidized black, size 1.5"x1". Any thoughts? The style of this pin after my search doesn't shout out Georg Jensen silver which tended to be curvy, and bumpy.

    Thank you for any comments and research, I can't find this lovely old pin.

      Nice brooch! I think you're on the right track with the Danish modern. They used 830 Sterling a lot, there are so many makers it can be hard to place. I'll take a look to and see what I find.

      Thank you Share! Any help is appreciated. Seems to get most hits for Danish Modern. I thought it was older. That's okay - I know it is very nice.

      Thanks also to MJ.

      Thanks Gudrun. It is a favorite. I usually wear it on my blue jean jkts w/the cluster of other small sterling pins. This one is my favorite though. I've never found a similar one.
