This is a weighty 26 grams (0.9 ounce) vintage sterling silver pin/pendant that was made to honor Mother's Day 1973. It features a lovely woman with flowers and an artistic swirl or swoosh around her.
On the back, it reads:
MOTHER'S DAY 1973
The pendant/pin measures 1-5/8 inch wide by 1-1/2 inch high. It is signed and copyrighted LUNT on the back of the piece where it also reads, Mother's Day 1973. It is marked Sterling as well.
You can find this lovely pin/pendant elsewhere in a shiny silver. However, we love the patina that the piece exhibits, adding to the vintage style. We discovered this offering at an estate sale.
We never clean vintage or antique items for fear of lowering the value of the item. Of course, you may choose to polish it professionally or with high quality tarnish remover in your home.
Lunt Silversmiths started in the early part of the 20th century and remained in the Lunt family through 2009, when its hallmark and inventory were sold to Reed & Barton.
This is a very special piece for a very special person.
