Rare Antique Ladybug Stickpin:
This ladybug stickpin is a real treasure. It is a highly detailed ladybug form, made realistic by beautiful enameling and intricate metalwork. The enameling process seems like cloisonné, with tiny metal wires separating the various enamel colors. The bug even has wee legs protruding from its body.
There are no maker’s marks on the piece, which weighs about .1 oz and measures 1 ¾" long including the pin.
There is no apparent damage to the enamel or the metalwork. Please review the photos.
