Antique Edwardian Hatpins Still on Original Card Castle Brand Old Store Stock
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a set of four hat pins that I acquired from an old general store. The pins are still on their original card, so were never used - the card is printed with “Dominion Nickel Plated Hat Pins Stout Steel Stems” and “The Castle Trade Mark Made in England”. Hat pin lengths reached their maximum right around 1911 due to the hair styles and elaborate hats that were popular at the time - these would date to that time period. These hatpins measure 10 1/8”, including the 1/2” diameter black glass ball top. The card has some toning due to exposure but the pins are in very good unused condition - a bit of surface wear to the steel stems, but tops are in original condition.
Unusual to find original hatpins like this, unused and still on the original card - nice addition to a collection!
