    Collecting hatpins, and loving to "kyratise" aka repairing broken pieces, I bought this little guy, whose pin was broken in the mount...
    Unmarked silver mount, sapphire eyes and split pearls collar.
    Showing here how I managed to make him a whole hat pin again! :-D

      Beautiful bulldog pin, I love his pearl collar! Once again Pascale, your 'kyratisation' is absolutely fantastic, kudos on the super repair

      Oh my Kyra! What a beauty! It does indeed look similar! Thanks for the lovely posts and encouragement! So fun to be able to share! I have so many more to post from my dogs, horse/equestrian and my Momento Mori (my Halloween collection!) As well as some other wonders I’ve found in my travels! It may take me a bit, but I’ll get them uploaded. I’d love yours and any others thoughts on any history, type, etc that I may not yet know! So glad I finally found a community! Big hugs to all you pin lovers out there! Seems I’m in very good company!

      No problem, Kira, I deleted the doubles, lol!

      I'm too on, where there is a warm community too, and where you can message other members or tag them to get help (features sadly lacking here...).

      This is wonderful dear Pascale, they were also very popular in about 1905 and during the early 20th Century. A simply fantastic piece I remember collecting whatever I could collect during the late 70's and I would have gone ga ga over this treasure. You did a very fine job on the Kyratization !~ Love to you.

      Thank you Jenni for your lovely visit and kind comment for the chubby doggy! :-)

      Phil, thank youuu! Yes, Frenchies were very fashionable in that era, as Pekinese, but I prefer them as they are little clowns!
      Love back to you, friend, XO

      Love this. I showed it to my Frenchie Sherman, and he repeatedly barked at it (thinking it was another dog)? Now that’s authenticity!

      Daisy, LOL! Thank you, and give a kiss to your Sherman for me :-))
