1940’s Ski Pin

Skiing Down The Slopes Has Never Been More Fun.

This young lady is just is racing  down the slopes in her black & red ski outfit complete with swirling snow behind her.  This  young lady has had her share of bumps and bruises on the slopes judging by the scratched enamel black & red paint on her outfit. The detail is absolutely  great complete with her blond hair flying in the breeze and that wonderful cherry red lipstick.  The pin is very old, the brass needs some polishing, and the clasp needs repair or replacement…..but think of the fun you would have in restoring this pin to its original glory.  The pin is 1 1/2″ in diameter, 1 1/2″ tall and the skis themselves are almost 2 1/2″ long.  By next winter you and her could make a huge statement on the slopes.

Limoges Pin & Earring Set Antique Gold Plated

“Lovers Finally Alone In A Garden”

Ah…..Springtime, when a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of love…..and we have this precious moment captured in a very old , hand painted, Limoges/France signed Porcelain pin and earring set.  We have seen different versions of this pin scene, but the matching screw back Porcelain earrings are a rarity.  The set is in magnificent condition with all the gold plate showing around the scalloped edges. and the subjects clear and crisp. The earrings are just slightly larger than a 10 cent piece  and the pin measures about one and one half inches in diameter or about the size of a Silver Dollar. Some describe the pin as a Limoge Mini Plate and the back has a “Trombone” workable clasp.  Love is in the air, take advantage of it.

Vintage Sterling Silver & Black Onyx Pin & Earring Set

Some Things Never Go Out Of Style- They Are Timeless

And so is this beautiful vintage Sterling Silver & Onyx pin & earring set. The back is signed TL-41  Mexico 925. The T means that the set was made in Taxco, Mexico and the L possibly means the initial of the designer although after lengthy research we could not find who the artist was.  The style indicated that it was clearly from the 1970’s / 1980’s.  This vintage set was worn and does show normal wear, however it does not detract from its beauty.  So show the world you are as timeless as this statement set.

Antique Bar Pin Of Very Old Paste Stones

Paste….Not Your Everyday Glue Variety

Pictured above is a great example of what was known as paste jewelry.   Paste jewelry dates back to the early 1700’s.   Paste was made out of high quality glass and combined with lead oxide to form truly sparkling stones which were designed to imitate Diamonds.   Sometime these stones were foil backed to give more depth to the stone.   The term paste is used very casually today and incorrectly refers to many types of costume jewelry.   This Sterling Silver bar pin contains 5 Paste stones to simulate Diamonds. The pin itself is 1 3/4″ long and although it is not a large piece of jewelry, we think it is one of the  best examples of true, very old paste jewelry.    This is a must have for any serious costume jewelry collector.

Pacasso Style Face Pin

Well, we are not quite sure what this is…..we do know that it has 1 ear, 2 eyes (sort of),  1 nose (sort of)  and 1 mouth (sort of). But what do do know is that we like the uniqueness of this pin.  It reminds us of something Pablo Picasso might  have created.  We love this unique pin and the more you see it, the beauty of it begins to grown on you. The pin measures almost 2 3/4 ” long X 2 1/2 ” wide (including the ear).  It has a matte gold tone finish and has been previously worn but in pretty good condition.  If you want to make a unique statement, you’ve come to the right place 🙂
