I have a simple modernist pin stamped sterling and H. Pear.. Last several letters are not stamped clearly enough to make out. does this ring any bells? thanks

Sounds like the work of Ronald Hayes Pearson, an esteemed midcentury smith. Can you post a picture? His style is very recognizable.

That is a Ronald Hayes Pearson pin. Scott Braznell wrote the definative biography of this artist in one of the Winterthur periodicals. Ron's early passing was a great tragedy. He had a great influence on many of us.

There is another thread entitled SILVERSMITH PEARSON" about some salt cellars by Pearson in the 20th C forum, and an internet search will net even more information.

I am still kicking myself for passing up a Pearson necklace that a general-line dealer tried to sell me some years ago. I should have recognized the name, but my brain was in neutral and I passed it up. By the time I realized my error and went back for it,it had been sold. Doh!
