Presented is a fantastic old sterling silver pin or brooch by Franklin Porter, dating to around the 1930s. This design was commissioned to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the city of Salem, in 1926, and depicts the brig Leander, a merchant ship. The pin is a fabulous handwrought piece of silver work, with the marks of hand hammering visible in the finish. This is a fine trademark piece by a renowned American Arts & Crafts movement silversmith, and is highly desirable and collectible today. 

This piece is in excellent condition. The hand hammered finish is in great shape. The clasp functions well and closes securely.

The pin is stamped with the maker's mark for Franklin Porter as well as sterling.

The pin measures about 1 7/8 by 1 ½ inches.

The pin weighs 9.2 grams.
