I found this little bug pin today. It is marked "SILVER" and "CHINA" and is about 5 cm long. I believe it is made of a tiger eye, a natural pearl, and two little red stones. I tried to clean it but it was very difficult because of the many fine details of the pin. I tried to search on line but didn't come up with anything. I probably would not have bought it if I had my magnifying glass with me because I try to stay away from modern, mass-produced items - but I couldn't see what it said and I was sure that it was sterling silver. I am guessing that the pin is at least of vintage age - but I am not sure.
I would greatly appreciate if any of the experienced collectors/experts could give me some idea what I got here. But even I don't find out what it is, this pin will make an interesting conversation starter: My daughter finds it extremely ugly.
Thanks for looking:)
