Vintage Hobe Bandora Ming Wise Man Jeweled Sterling Pin
This fabulous and large vintage Hobe Bandora Ming Wise Man sterling silver pin is a mix of sterling and silver vermeil. It is extremely intricate in design and centers around a brownish molded resin in the shape of a Ming wise man that imitates Bandora wood. There are three silver vermeil tassels that accent the pin, as well as bright vibrant stones and gold vermeil leaves, topped off with a floral cluster spray. It dates from the 1940's, and is marked on the back. Rare, gorgeous, and highly collectible, this pin is a winner! It does have tarnish on it, but otherwise is completely original and in excellent vintage condition.
