My parents recently returned from a trip to Ireland and my mom brought back the most incredible pin! She picked it up in a jewelry store in the town next to where we once lived.
On one side it has an ivory carving of a castle and on the other, there is a tin photo of a woman. It rotates so the pin can be worn on either side.
It is such a unique piece!
Because the clasp is so flimsy, it is off to be worked on. The glass is loose and my mother is going to have a piece added so that it can be worn as a necklace as well as a pin.
It’s actually pretty hard to find nice old things in Ireland so this was a very special purchase.
