Silver shawl-pin, a hollow-stamped and reduced version of 'Queen's' brooch. Decorated with two trefoil bosses on the ring and one forming the pin-head, with animal-heads and interlace ornamentation. The pin is in one piece with the ring with an ordinary brooch-fitting at the back. The reverse is stamped with two animal heads with gaping mouths and tongues with a secondary pin at the bottom to keep the brooch in place. Stamped maker's name.
