Silver pin, length 4.4cm. Plain round-sectioned shaft shaped to slightly squared off spear-shaped tip. Head apparently flattened with beaded edge, and set on either side with round silver cells surrounded by double beaded wire collar, and set with cabochon garnets on chequered foil and paste. One garnet missing exposing foil. Chequered pattern very fine.
