Leningrad Column Pin

Leningrad Column Pin

Small metal & enamel pin of a stylized column, probably a famous Leningrad (St. Petersburg) landmark. Again, the pin appears much nicer in real life. On the back is a maker’s mark and the price – 18 kopeks. There is also some Cyrillic text, which I will attempt to transliterate: Rostralnaya Kolonna. I believe that is the name of the landmark. Size: 1.5 x 3.3 cm.

The metal is gold-colored, and the green enamel is translucent. This looks lovely in good light: bright and shining.
