Edwardian era pin (1890-1910). The Edwardian era is known for it's elegance and attention to detail - even in the smallest of pieces. This is a TINY navette shaped little pin and a tinier navette shape in the center with a rhinestone. Beautiful filigree work with scrolls and lines, flower motifs and even filigree on the outside edge. All of this is outlined in milgraining. You can see a small break in the metal where the pieces were originally joined together, but only in the side view. It looks great from the front and in order to fix it I would have to grip it hard enough to sqash the milgrain, so I opted to do as much as I could without damage and leave it at that.

Pin back is in good workiing condition and is a tube style - placing it at the earliest part of the Edwardian era or late Victorian. Edwardian era clasps are a very specific style - I'll probably cover it in a blog eventually but in general, pulling the mechanism up opens it and pushing it down closes it (and a regular clasp is the opposite).
