This is a circa 1930s pin from Tau Zeta Epsilon, the Arts & Music Society of Wellesley College for women. Formed in 1889 to provide supplemental arts education, one of the society's notable graduates was Madame Chiang Kai Shek. The delicate pin is in 14 karat gold with enameled lettering, and is in the shape of the society’s crest: a winged wheel.
Approximately 5/8” in height and 9/16” in width.
14 karat gold, enamel.
Horizontal pin with drop-in locking swivel catch.
This is from a school and colleges collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MAHX99 LAFEX8/11
8 (Excellent-): The pin shows very light wear and some very small areas of light tarnish.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
