Unique Stunning Leopard/wild Cat Pin- "925" & Marcasite Art Deco Style- Gorgeous:
This gorgeous pin has been designed, I believe, as an Art Deco era stick or cloak pin. It appears to me to be a stunning revival piece & not as old as the 1930's, although it looks quite like the type of piece the Duchess of Windsor would have owned! I love it! The top is a stylized leopard head, grasping a ball in its mouth. The head tapers into a narrow point, to resemble a cloak pin or hat ornament, although it actually fastens with a regular pin. The back is marked "925" for sterling silver. The silver is set with marcasites & the black ball in the mouth is either stone or glass. The pin measures about 2 1/4 inches long. It is fabulous!!
