A vintage Art Nouveau hat pin featuring a round top with blue and green
enameling, circa 1910. The decorative element at the top measures 26 mm wide
and 12.5 mm deep--it is a silver tone base metal that was likely originally
silver plated. It is accented with four slightly recessed scroll design
elements that have vivid green and blue enameling inlaid. The pin stem is steel
and measures 9 3/4-inches long. Total length is 10 1/4-inches (including the
design element at the top). This is a longer pin, that allows pretty accurate
dating. Women began wearing large hats around the turn of the century and
needed longer pins to keep them in place. This trend ended in the 1920's with
the change in fashion (and smaller hats). Condition is very good; the metal has
oxidized which is consistent with age and use. If you are interested in

All of my vintage items are all previously worn and loved and so are sold as
is. I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a
certified GIA gemologist. I do my best to accurately describe items and am
confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc. I use the
term "delicate" in many of my listings which I interpret to mean small or
dainty. If the ring or item requires extra care when worn, usually I use
“fragile” or "wear with care". Most pieces have been lightly polished or
cleaned, if possible, unless the process will damage or alter their natural
patina. Some items can be altered, some cannot, so please feel free to ask
questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can. Please keep in mind that
custom-altered pieces are non-returnable.

Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept
returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and
insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in
which they were received and within two (2) weeks of receipt.

Payment: I accept Etsy Payments and PaypaI. Please contact me with any
questions or concerns at my web site www.tinacityad.com or through Etsy.

Thank you!
