Vintage 1940's Trembler Nodder Hatpin
This Vintage 1940s Trembler Nodder Hat Pin is unusual and whimsical. It has a coiled brass spring so the topper moves. It features chaton cut and hand-set rhinestones with prong settings. When oversized hats became popular around 1850 hatpins were very desirable. Designers created many different methods to decorate the pin ends or toppers and they became more ornamental and detailed. The topper is designed like a flower. The outside has ten elongated brass petal stems of alternating heights. Each petal stem has an individual rhinestone. The lower stems (5) have green rhinestones and the higher stems (5) have clear rhinestones. The bottom center of the flower contains six clear rhinestones (five surrounding one in the center). The following measurements are approximate: 1 3/8 high x 2 5/8 wide (end or topper), 6 (shank or stem) and 7 3/8 (total length). This Vintage Trembler Hat Pin shows normal wear due to age. SOLD!
