Spider Genuine Amber 1930s Signed Russian 8kt Gold Brooch Pin Hand Made USSR
This is a vintage figural spider pin or brooch signed with natural natural Baltic Amber head and body with natural material visible inside.
The vintage Russian Baltic Amber spider has 8kt gold legs and fittings.
The pin has an old style C clasp and is signed with an impressed portion of a maker's mark showing the Russian Cyrillic letters B F Ya, whom I have been unable to identify.
The hand made spider measures.5 inches high by 2.25 inches long by 2 inches wide; large pear shaped body that is 25mm by 18mm by 12mm on the and a 7mm by 5mm round head and is hand bezel set and is extremely well made.
The Amber is genuine, is statically charged and flouresces under UV black light.
The metal is an 8kt gold, which is a normal low carat gold used in Russia at the time and has been acid tested.
The pin is from the 1930-1940s and has been in the family since then.
The quirky, fun yet elegant spider brooch is in excellent used vintage condition as well as a very unusual item.
