19th century silver & enamel hair pin and stand. This hair pin is an extraordinary work. It is made as a filigree design with line form floral decoration on the filigree on the back. The front is a gorgeous design of high relief insects and floral elements that have been covered with sparking blue enamel. The overall shape is of an ancient fan that would have stood on either side of a throne. It has its own silver stand. It was probably for a high born Manchu.
