This unusual antique sterling silver orchid flower with genuine pearl pin is signed GEORG JENSEN in a dotted circle. It also has the GJ hallmark.
Both of these hallmarks are a little bit covered by the clasp. This pin is a mystery because it is a design I have not been able to find. I wrote to a Georg Jensen expert in Denmark. She was not familiar with the design either and thought it could be a very early piece, but wasn't sure.
Has a secure closing pin back with a safety catch. There is a circle in the very center of the back of the pin which leads me to believe that it may originally have been made as a custom designed hat pin and possibly later converted into a pin.
I have left the original patina for you to polish as you please. Photo is not actual size.
