Mid 1800s American Victorian 18k Gold Blue Enamel Swirl Pin/Pendant
Presented is a beautiful Victorian 18 karat gold and blue enamel pin or pendant. This piece dates to the mid 1800s and is of American make. The pin is done in a swirled knot design, alternating a smooth finish with delicate hand engraved texturing and designs. The center of the pin has rich blue enamel in a design of ivy leaves. The back has an old C-style clasp as well as a loop/bail so it can be worn as a pendant.
The pin is in great overall condition. The clasp functions well and closes securely. There is only the tiniest flake to the blue enamel, otherwise it is all intact and in good shape. There are no breaks and no repairs.
The pin is not stamped or hallmarked, but we have tested it with nitric acid and guarantee it to be 18 karat gold.
The pin is about 1 1/4 inches long.
The pin weighs 8.3 grams.
