    I came across this pin and like it right away. The color is lovely. When I looked at the back there's some writing but I do not know how to read it. The writing is not in English. Does anyone know what language the wordings are written? And what kind of pin is this?

      This is a Russian papier-mache brooch. Can't help with the translationI'm afraid, it will be in Cyrillic script.

      @Gillian....thank you so much for the info. I do email Marketing with a Russian dude so I am going to ask him if he can translate it for me. I will then update my post. Thank you once again.

      My friend who is a Russian says the wording means "Russian Beauty".

      It has a trombone brooch clasp, which indicates it was used from as early as the late 1800s. The clasp was mainly used by European designers and can be found on more modern pins up to the mid 20th century.
