About these slides: Set of 4 super pretty Indonesian hair pins. These have two prongs, on top of which is a spring with a super animal or insect. The set comprises 2 butterflies, a deer and an elephant. The springs enable the decoration to be bent and move. These hair pins are quite unusual- there are many that feature flowers but I have not seen many that feature animals before purchasing this collection. The metalwork is quite pliable. They are gold tone in colour and are etched (see photos) but I am unsure what the actual metal is. The eyes are a sparkly crystal.
Age: I am unsure what the actual age of these is, they were purchased from a lady who was selling a friend's collection.
Condition: In very good condition, there is some tarnishing, commensurate with age- please see photos. I have not tried to clean the metalwork.
As is typical with this style of hair pin, these items have sharp ends and care should be taken when using and handling. They are not suitable for children.
They measure approximately 7 inches from top to bottom points.
