  1950s Vintage Sterling WIESKIRCHE 'Wise Church' German Oktoberfest Alpine Hiking Hat Pin, Vintage Trachten Brooch Pin with Enamel Shield in Oktoberfest hiking pins

$30.00




Very nice vintage German alpine hiking hat pin, featuring a color enamel shield set in a high quality sterling silver frame. Authentic 1950s vintage trachten alpine hat brooch.

It features the famous Wieskirche "Wise Church", one of the most important places of pilgrimage in southern Germany. The shield features a detailed illustration of the church with its name is printed in black over the blue sky. The sterling silver setting is nicely molded, with fancy scroll work on the sides and a crown or turret shape at the top. (It is much more detailed than the photo shows!) This fine vintage hat pin measures 3/4" tall and features a secure pin back. It is in excellent vintage condition. Color enamel shields like this one were used in the earlier vintage souvenir pins, and helps to date this piece.

Adorn your alpine or Oktoberfest hat with this special vintage German hat pin!

SIDE NOTE: The Wieskirche is one of the most famous works from the Rococo period of art and architecture.  It is situated between Steingaden and Wildsteig on the Romantic Road, on a country lane to the small hamlet of Wies. The Romantic Road includes the religious attraction of Oberammergau and the Passion Play.
