Description

This elegant handcrafted pin celebrates an ancient Greek example in The Met collection. The original gold straight pin, adorned with a decorative orb at one end, was made in the 6th century B.C., during the Archaic period. The basic elements of female dress'the chiton (sleeveless top), peplos (body-length garment), and himation (cloak)'could be worn in various configurations through different methods of draping. Since ancient Greek clothing was not sewn, both straight pins and fibulae (safety pins) served to fasten a garment at the shoulders, the sleeves, over the chest, and at other points.
