HERMES Vintage Squirrel Pin
Note from the Designer:
A note to collectors! HERMES manufactured a series of ravishing animals pins during the last century. We estimate that the following pin dates from 1837-1840 and belonged to an elegant lady. We have here a very fine exemplar of the squirrel model, showcasing the rodent on a branch. The eye is set with a small ruby. The craftsmen of the house managed to make the “fur effect” real thanks to the delicate guilloché.
This pin is incredibly modern and will be as elegant on a lapel as on a little simple dress: let your fantasy run wild!
Weight of the pin: 18.9g
750/1000 guilloched yellow gold
