A fabulous and charming Estate pin! Crafted in sterling silver, this whimsical piece features an open-winged bat standing atop a smiling crescent Man-in-the-Moon. Faux rubies stud the bat's eyes, and textured details cover its body and wings. The crescent moon has wonderful detailed facial features, smiling gently at the bat. There is a pin across the back and a bail hidden behind the bat's head, allowing it to be worn as both a pin and a pendant. The back of the crescent moon is stamped "STERLING". An intriguing piece, this bat and Man in the Moon would be a perfect addition to any pin collection.
Measurements: The piece measures approximately 13/16" wide and 1 1/4" tall. It is slightly more than 7/16" at its deepest point.
Condition: The pin/pendant is in overall excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting. The faux rubies are both intact and securely set. There is a natural patina on the silver setting, commensurate with age. The pin clasp and bail are both secure and in good working order.
