This diminutive figural eagle brooch or pin measures 1 1/4" wide by 1/2" high and is a fabulous miniature patriotic piece. I'm unsure of its exact age, but it has an early "C" clasp.
The pin, possibly a late Victorian or earaly Edwardian era piece is a nice casting stamped "STERLING" inside a mark that looks like a fish. Anyone ever seen this mark before?? An incredibly realistically detailed paste piece, the eagle is encrusted with pave set clear faceted rhinestones w/ a pink rhinestone eye.
The pin may be some sort of patriotic or military inspired piece or not... It may even be sweetheart jewelry. Regardless, it is a wonderful piece in good condition. While it is missing some stones and some are a little darkened, I wouldn't change a thing. It has a nice look to it, the stones taking on a marcasite look.
