Fantastic Large Vintage Silver Owl Pin Cushion Cute Cabinet Display Piece For Sale
Welcome to Classique Jewellery
Feast your eyes on THIS handsome and most endearing fellow!
This is a VINTAGE and very pretty large PIN-Cushion, in fully HALLMARKED Sterling silver, wonderfully crafted as an OWL!
He stands 6.25 cms tall and 3.35 cms across his base. It weighs a total 21.6 grams.
Other than patina and tarnish, he is in a very good vintage condition, with no dents or dings. NB: The 'yellowish' colour to the fold of his neck is tarnish and 'flashing', NOT brass! This has been FULLY tested for Sterling silver, as well as being Hallmarked.
Difficult to date with any accuracy as the Hallmarks cannot be fully deciphered. He is NOT Victorian, but he is also not to be confused with the plethora of modern reproductions emanating from the Far East. I would think he originates from the 1970's.
He is Hallmarked/Stamped to the base with what appears to be a SEAHORSE motif in a rectangular lozenge, together with '925'. It is additionally stamped with a SHIELD motif, inside of which is a series of loops and the initials 'FMT'. It is further stamped with an indecipherable lozenge and a separate '925' stamp.
Whether a collector of sewing antiques or silver cabinet display wares, this is amongst the nicest examples you will find!
DON'T let him fly away!
