Fantastic large, sterling silver oenophile’s pin depicting an openwork scene of two juvenile followers of Bacchus (putti? cherubs?) hauling a heaping basket of grapes to a press. Perfect gift or adornment for a vintner, wine enthusiast or collector. Circa 1920-40. I’ve been in this business for 20 years, and wine related jewelry is rare. Attractive wine jewelry is even rarer, and to find an old piece is serendipity indeed! Slight smoothing of high points from years of wear, but otherwise excellent condition. Tiny STERLING stamp on the back. See photos for dimensions and detail.$6.10 for USPS domestic Priority Mail shipping & handling. Combine purchases and save on shipping.

Fantastic sterling silver oenophile’s ring with a green tourmaline intaglio of an ancient Greek amphora, or wine jug. On either side on the shoulders is cluster of grapes. Perfect gift or adornment for a vintner, wine enthusiast or collector. Finding an old piece with an unusual carving like this is a real treat! It could be anywhere from 1900 to 1940’s. Ring is approximately size 7-7.5 Tiny marks stamped on the inside- see photos. Condition is close to excellent --there are a couple of the TINIEST little nips on the edge of the stone table and the inside of the intaglio rim --visible ONLY when viewed with a loop. See the photos.
