European Silver and Chrysoprase Fish Pin, c. 1935
Both graceful and exotic, this fish pin is of quality construction and design. It is probably German; although there are no marks, the material tests as silver. There may have been some sort of lacquer applied to preserve the surface. The fish body is a cabochon chrysoprase, the eye is red glass, and the fins exhibit a rich combination of marcasite and texturing for a milligrained look. The back features a secure trombone clasp. The pin measures 1 3/4 inches by 1 1/8 inches at the longest and widest parts.
