Antique Victorian Hat Pin Thistle Sterling Silver Amethyst Charles Horner ? *nr* For SaleThis sale features a Victorian hat pin in sterling silver and amethyst in a thistle motif. Similar to the pieces by Charles Horner, not sure if its by him or the same silversmith working for a different firm. I have polished it a little since taking the photographs, I can polish it more before I ship if you'd like, just let me know. Measures 11" long, excellent condition. Market-fresh estate piece, recently purchased. Feel free to message me with any questions, thanks for looking!On Jun-22-13 at 19:47:16 PDT, seller added the following information:
Hallmark is JW, who was the same silversmith who made the thistle pieces for the Horner firm, as you can see the components that comprise them are identical. I can't remember his name but it can be found in the book "Charles Horner of Halifax."
I found his name, it was James Webb of Birmingham.
