condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Staffordshire
model name / number: Pansy
size / dimensions: less than 2"

This beautiful pin of a 5 petalled pansy was made in England long ago.
Made by a famous Staffordshire company long ago ~ Cara China is the name on the pin.
It is purple and green porcelain and ever so sweet! 1 7/8" size
A bit of history on these at: https://www.passionforthepastantiques.com/articles/item/article/english-bone-china-jewelry-a-dazzling-array-of-color/
Apparently, this could be as old as 1945!
The last photo shows better detail (from the web).
The pin I am selling has much more vivid colors. The 5 petals are perfect and there is only one very tiny 'flea bit' on one of the 3 green parts.
