Jewel of the day: George Pierre “GIP” horn pin

Wonderful and rare Art Nouveau horn wings signed on reverse GIP for George Pierre. (See p. 13 in Ginger Moro’s “European Designer Jewelry”.) Signature is carved on reverse, with a brass clasp typical for the period. Pierre designed from approximately 1915 to 1936. This has a brown centre stone – I do not know what material this is made of. Feels very cold to the touch so could be glass; could also be carnelian or chalcedony. Measures 3 inches long by 1/2 an inch wide.
