Period Carnival Glass Bat Hat Pin

Period authentic carnival glass pin.  Originally a hatpin.  Set in sterling silver pre 1950.  A most interesting hat pin with a striking shape. Many carnival glass hat pins were made in Czechoslovakia, but we are uncertain of the origin of this pin.  2 inches.  Carnival glass is moulded or pressed glass, always with a pattern and always with a shiny, metallic, 'iridescent' surface shimmer. Carnival glass gets its iridescent sheen from the application of metallic salts while the glass is still hot from the pressing. A final firing of the glass brings out the iridescent properties of the salts, giving carnival glass the distinct shine it is known for.
