Amber Peacock Pin
|A Smithsonian Institution Exclusive|
With his magnificent train jeweled with luminous Baltic amber cabochons, this trendsetting Amber Peacock Pin is proud to show his glow rather than strut his shimmer. Handcrafted in Poland, this Amber Peacock Pin is a masterpiece of the silversmith’s art. 2"w.
Since the Bronze Age, the world’s largest deposit of 35- to 40-million-year-old amber has been harvested from the Baltic Sea along Poland and Lithuania’s “Amber Coast.” Today, Gdansk, Poland’s amber artisans and jewelers with their centuries of accumulated knowledge and skill produce some of the world’s finest amber jewelry. Our stunning Amber Peacock Pin is evocative of exquisite figurative amber jewelry in our National Museum of Natural History’s Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals. Lovely amber jewelry is also curated by our National Museum of American History’s costume collections.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
