Victorian Coral Strawberry Pin in Gold

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Circa 1860, 14k, American. This delightful carved coral pin features strawberries ripening amongst delicate curling leaves. Perfect on a dress or jacket, its breezy antique chic dresses up or down. Expert hand-carving and naturalistic details make this brooch a stylish one-of-a-kind. Very good condition. Noted: part of the charm of antique coral are the slight surface imperfections.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "Today, when coral reefs are protected from harvest for their invaluable ecological role, the trade of old coral represents the best of all worlds. The beauty of this natural stone is recognized, and pieces which had been harvested in the past are lovingly handed down (recycled!). It is a wonderfully green way to wear fashionable organics and to feel good doing it!"
