A charming late nineteenth century stick pin. This pin features two half masks, one black and one red, with glinting diamonds set into the eyes. The masks are domino masks, plain half-masks that were commonly worn at masquerade balls and at the Venice Carnival. The mysterious and playful symbolism of a double mask is a lovely feature of this stick pin.
