Here is a lovely lady with lotuses or water lilies in her hair. The lotus, a variety of water lily, has symbolized purity, enlightenment, and resurrection. This lady is remarkably similar to a piece made by the Unger Bros., but marked only STERLING – and the stamp is reversed. We believe her to be a copy, but still made around 1900 – this seemed to have happened fairly frequently back in the day. She has the patina of age, a pin stem assembly which is correct for the turn of the last century, and the back of the pin has some scratches. It measures 1" x 1-5/8". Overall the piece is in well-loved antique condition, still very wearable, and circa 1900. The photos are part of the description, so please examine them carefully. Thanks! Shipping, handling & insurance within the USA included.
