Dating from a time when every well dressed lady would wear a hat pin to secure her hat during the Edwardian era by the collectable maker Adie & Lovekin Ltd. The pin is in the shape of a golf club with the charming addition of a scottish thistle flower in honour of St Andrews in Fife being the home of golf.
The English silver hallmark can be found to the rear of the thistle leaf, this is where you find the anchor for Birmingham assay office, the date letter for year 1909, & the maker 'ALLd'. The thistle flower is made from a citrine colour paste stone, it has a tiny nibble to one edge & one to the top, however both being so small they do not detract please see the pictures. Good straight pin.
