This Schreiner Rhinestone Pin is 2 ½” across and approximately ¾” proud. The pin and rollover catch work well. In addition, the silver plating looks like it has never been worn and is in great condition. You’ll also notice the dog tooth prongs, pie pan open-backed construction, domed composition, and unique color combinations. These are all characteristics of SCHREINER!
In the “Schreiner” book by Carole Tanenbaum & Eve Townsend, these pins are called “Mile-High Brooches”. Pictured on page 139 is a Schreiner Rhinestone Pin. Although with a different color combo, it has the magnificent marbles and big oval cabs!
