A one-off, drole visual pun lapel pin, circa 1840. The high carat gold pin is set with an enamel eye with blue iris surmounted by the word
. 'My eye!' was an archaic expression that implied doubt or disbelief - if the eye did not see it, then it was not proven to be true. The pin is 3.5 inches long and 3/4 of an inch wide across the eye. Fine quality, substantial and immaculate.
