This itsy bitsy spider has survived roughly 80 years! From Evelyn Brent to Mae West’s spider goddess gowns, spiders were on trend in 30s haute couture and we can see this pin fitting right in. Dated to the 1930s, the spider in its web is crafted in sterling silver and features an oval bezel set turquoise as the spider’s abdomen. The piece has a natural patina indicative of its age and a wonderful handmade quality.
Excellent vintage condition.
Marked "STERLING" under the body of the spider.
The brooch measures approximately 7/8” in diameter. The turquoise is approximately 5mm wide and 7mm long. Weighs 3.6 grams.
