True Vintage Art Deco Ornate Hat Pin, Blue/White Stone
Antique/true vintage 4.5" art deco hat pin with cutout thick ornate top with a bezel-set white and blue stone that appears to be glass. The top of the pin is about 1" wide and sits about 3/4" high and is about 3/4" across at the widest point. It is ornately presented with a thick metal base and intricate cutouts and on the top there is some tiering and texturing with the greek key-like scrolls on either side of the stone. The stone is slightly over 1/2" long. It is shades of blue and white in the stone and under magnification you can see some like wear on the surface but no breaks or cracks. The goldtone part of the pin was acid tested at 14kt which was negative. At 10kt, the acid test produced a test area that lightly reacted but did not totally react; however under magnification you can see some very light surface wear in some areas which leads be to believe it is G.P. and not 10kt gold. It was tested multiple times and the acid reacted the same each time. This is in very good condition considering it's age - it is heavily constructed. It is not signed. See Photos.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.

I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
