This listing is for a vintage hair pin. I have not seen one like this one ever and I have a few. I was wondering how it worked until it used a hair sample on it. The pin is 4 12 long so you could get a lot of hair in there it has grooves in it to make it easy to put a little hair or a lot in the hair piece.
You can see all the jibberish on the back there could be a signature in there but I doubt it. Most of these older pieces are not signed anyway.This was a super cool find. Kinda wanted to keep it but then need to sell unfortunately! You don't have to have long hair to wear this. Or if you do, its great for a ponytail. I would venture to say this is 30's era.
By the 40's and 50's barrettes with clips came along. This is a great old hair ornament sure to be noticed! The oval part of this is stamped so pretty, it measures 3" long and 1 1/2" wide with very pretty stamp work. The weight is with the pin 16 grms. So its a good sturdy piece.
Nice for the collectors out there or someone who likes vintage Native American jewelry. It has been tested on the back to be sterling silver. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to message me and I will be happy to help, especially with cuff sizes. Thanks so much for visiting my store!
