Product Information

This antique silver brooch pin is a unique find. It is circa 1900, over 120 years old, and it is a piece of jewelry based on the style and design of the arts and crafts movement era, which evolved during the late 19th century and the early 20th century.

The reverse of this pin features signature hallmarks of English sterling silver, including the lion passant, which depicts a walking lion with a raised right paw. This lion passant represents a standard of metal purity and is typically found on all English sterling silver. The reverse also displays the maker’s jewelry marks “RA”.

The form of this pin is a circular crest with raised decoration. The scrolling twisted vines are best known in arts and crafts movement jewelry examples. We love antique sterling silver jewelry at All The Decor, as over time, each piece develops a unique patina and patterns of wear that are unique for each piece of sterling silver jewelry. This antique sterling silver brooch pin would be an excellent purchase for anyone that collects arts and crafts movement jewelry or is interested in collecting English sterling silver or antique brooches or pins. We hope you find an opportunity to welcome it and its extensive history of design into your collection.
