This unusual pin/brooch is one of my Vintage "converts" LOL ~
formerly one half of a pair of earrings...but, since it had no mate, and
I really liked the theme, I decided to make it into a pin.
Personally, I've never been a very punctual person, so this piece "speaks" to me...
I think it says "screw time" ~ but you can choose to interpret it any way you like :)
I have no idea how old it is, but I suspect late 70's to early 80's when "fan" earrings were so popular.
Nicely detailed, it's made of Antique Brass, measures approx 1.5" across...
has a tiny crystal set in the center of the hands, and an ivory pearl in a flower setting.
The pin back is also brass, attached securely with E6000.
Makes a great lapel or scarf pin... and a great conversation piece, don't you think?!
