Composed of a trapezoidal, hammered panel decorated with applied silver wire and beads, this impressive pin most likely evokes a German arts and crafts influence. A faceted smoky quartz sits securely within a modified bezel mounting. The stone shows no wear or scratching; the C-clasp on the back is well soldered and secure, as is the pin stem. An 800 is impressed into the back to indicate silver content. There are no other marks, but the pin probably dates from the 1920s or 1930s. It measures 2 ¾ inches long by 1 1/8 inches at its widest part. Gross weight: 19.5 grams
