Pair of Art Deco Long Hatpins, Insects.
Quite wonderful pair of hatpins - the heads are insects with feelers and hairy legs, all made in gilded brass or metal. The eyes are small coral beads. There are four further of these beads on one of the bugs, but only one on the other (three missing). The heads are mounted against a clear, faceted glass disc. Pins are long, in the Edwardian style. Probably made just after WW1 when fashions were rapidly changing from Edwardian large hair and hats to the slimmed-down Deco era just beginning. Total length of hatpins including the head: 24.5 cm. Diameter of head is 4 cm. Apart from the missing little beads, they are in very good condition.
