Charming 1.3 inch solid 9 karat gold pin with the word “BABY”also in gold, appliqued to its top. Circa 1895. These tiny pins were used by the rich for fastening baby clothing in the 19th and very early part of the 20th century. This pin tests at 9 karat, an English gold standard. It is in excellent condition with the original pin back and clasp. A sweet and thoughtful gift for someone with a new baby of their own. Or since everyone is someone else’s baby, for the big BABY in your life---looks subtly cool and humorous on an adult collar, lapel, hat or beret.
