Very cute sterling silver and turquoise bug pin. The turquoise stones are high quality. The round stone is 1/4 diameter.
The oval stone is 1/2 long. The bug is 1 1/4" long x 15/16" wide x 11/16 tall. The legs are made of twisted silver wire rope. The eyes are silver beads. The wings are open and nicely stamped silver.
73 is etched on the bottom. I don't know if this is the year the pin was made but it may be. There is no makers hallmark. We tested the metal to verify it is sterling silver.
The vintage pin is in great condition. Please let us know if you have questions.
