Too late for Halloween..... ;-D

Very strange subject for women adornment!

A little carved bone skull, very realistic, with a tiny turquoise on top for setting.

Whole steel pin is 21cm (8.1/8"), carved skull itself is 1.5cm square (9/16").

Odd litle guy !

    Woooh Bonnie during one of my last flea market tour... about 4 years ago :-)

    It was in my bunch on top shelf of a tall cabinet...

    Many thanks for loving him, as well as earliest lovers: Caperkid, Sean and Kerry :-D

    21cm Pascale!!!!that is one very cool long hatpin!!!
    The turquoise is a nice touch!!

    Celiene, Bonnie, your links are TERRIFIC, big thank you !
    I heard about early electrical pieces, but never seen any :-)
    The MMA piece is an extraordinary Memento Mori :-)

    Judy, thanks, 21 cm place it in 19th, or 1920, due to the size of the hats then. Longest are 30cm for Belle Epoque monumental feathered hats!
    From the style of the setting and subject of this one, I'd say 1850/1860 ...

    Many warm thanks to all of you, 14 lovers :-D
