This Victorian gold and seed pearl hat-pin is of French artisanship, crafted in 14k matted yellow gold, weighing 2.6g and measuring 66mm long, 18mm wide and 3mm deep. Hat-pins are placed amongst the popular historical fashion accessories required to fasten large hats worn by ladies throughout Victorian and Edwardian eras, encompassing a great variety produced for distinct occasions and referred to as 'tea-hats', 'Derby-hats' 'riding-hats' and the like. This exquisite Victorian hat-pin is a collectible piece of jewelry for those interested in period costume, jewelry and memorabilia. This Victorian hat-pin is designed as a miniature Danish axe, a long-handled weapon with a large flat blade, attributed to the Vikings. It is documented that at least since the late Neolithic period, elaborate battle-axes had a religious significance and indicated the exalted status of their owner. This symbolic arm-length battle-axe was held in one or both hands and, as the Vikings would have us believe, delivered more cleaving power against a smaller target area as opposed to a sword swing. This alluring miniature axe is adorned with 27 half-pearls measuring between 1.5 and 2.5mm in diameter, graded 'cream with a grayish hue' color. The temptingly delicate, iridescent organic gems are interspersed throughout the axe-blade, the shoulders, and the arrow-headed extremities of the axe-head and also embellish the alluring yellow gold foliate with a delicate stem tied around the axe, enriched with a duo of yellow gold 'buds'. The axe-blade bears the purity mark and the eagle's head within a lozenge cartouche denoting French jewelry produced for export.
