Knoll & Pregizer Prince of Wales Feather Paste Pin
This is a delightful brooch, small in scale, 1 " by 1 1/4". High grade sterling silver with bezel set pastes. Marked 935 KP.
Done in the shape of Prince of Wales feathers which is the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales of England. The real Prince of Wales feathers would have a crown at the bottom holding the 3 feathers together, but it's such a lovely motif. This is a sweet type of (at the time) inexpensive novelty pin that KP made a lot of. The pastes do not fill up the entire design,those little bumps at the bottom give the look of stones without having to set them, so it was cheaper to manufacture.
