Beautiful flower with petals and leaves made of faux tortoise (celluloid?) or nut casing. The flower is suspended on a spring on the end of the hairpin so that it trembles.

Condition is excellent for such an old, delicate piece. One petal has a spot of surface damage and one leaf is partially loose...
