A pretty hatpin made by the firm Charles Horner in 1904. Charles Horner (1837–1896) was an English jeweller and founded his the Halifax based jewellery business in the 1860s “Charles Horner of Halifax”. It produced silver jewellery and ornaments. Among its better known jewellery lines were enamelled Art Nouveau pendants, and silver hatpins. Hatpins reached a peak of popularity between the 1890s and 1920s, as music hall actresses like Lillian Russell and Lillie Langtry fuelled the popularity of large elaborate hats without bonnet strings. Having originated in the 1850s to secure straw hats, hatpins became longer and more ornate over time until in 1910 the hatpin length, with the stems alone reached 10 to 12 inches. This hatpin is a good example of what was produced in the 1900s and would be ideal for a collector.
