Sterling Silver & Marcasite English Heron Pin
You’ll say “hurrah” for Herons when you first unwrap this pin for with its elegant and stately stance it’s truly a pleasure to behold (and be wear!) Crafted of sterling silver and graced with a garnet eye, the Crane or Egret exhibits amazing detail for one so small and boasts both jet and green cabochons on its breast alongside sparkling marcasites. Birdie has flown a long way, baby, as he’ just in from the U.K. and is in good vintage condition aside from a tiny nick on the green cabochon edge which can only be seen under a loupe. Measures just over 1 3/8” in length and is 1” wide at the base, and has a nice weight for its size. Marked “925” on the back, although it’s hard to see (just under the tail) and has a roll clasp that works well. A well done piece of art this chap is, one you are certain to enjoy for years to come.
