Custom hand made hardware - little hinged end screwed on with the tiniest screws I have ever seen, old fashioned c clasp on the other side. Rare find in great condition.
Ready and waiting for your lapel , collection, or gift giving - you will love this! AGE OR ERA : Authentic true vintage piece - guessing mid to late 1800's in era. MARKINGS : None that I could find. METAL / MATERIAL : Bog oak wood and metal hardware. The pin back hardware looks to be mixed metals - some brass, and some silver toned.CLASP / CLOSURE : C clasp. Aprox 1 1/8" x 1 1/8" x just under 1/2 tall or thick (not including hardware).
WEIGHT : 7.1 grams on my scale. INVENTORY NUMBER OR NOTE : x. = Fantastic vintage condition given the age - no damage found to mention.
The stick pin portion of the hardware has a "V" shaped indent to it. I haven't tried to straighten it out - but I imagine you sure could if you felt the need. It very well may be original the the pin also. No chips or cracks at all found to the wood or carvings. I have not cleaned it all all - but from the looks of some of my extreme close ups - it looks like it could use some.
I will leave it to the proud new owner. I n an excellent state of preservation. A picture is worth a thousand words. Please view & enlarge photographs to closely inspect fine details and to determine the amount of patina and/or wear. Most older pieces by nature normally have some degree of both and, unless severe, aren't considered damaged and not mentioned.
Especially if obvious and/or prominent in the photos.
