A large, lavish Art Nouveau design sterling and enamel Canadian military sweetheart pin c1900-20. This 2-1/2" x 1-7/16" pin features subtle and lovely lavender enamel flowers and borders, and it is on a textured sterling ground. There is a soldered shield with a central maple leaf applied to the pin, and it has blackened borders around the details - I believe it is a World War One or a Boer War period sweetheart or wives brooch. It closes with a c-clasp, and it is stamped STERLING with the DJ and Castle maker's mark. This item is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, corrosion, repairs or damage. There is a spot on the upper part of the brooch where the enamel looks unfinished, but it is only that there is a bit too much silver there (original to the manufacture of the piece). Shipping is $5 (to the US - other spots may vary) - insured is higher. We do ship internationally. All of our prices are in $US.
