Snowflake Bentley 2020 Scatter Pin
Introducing the 2020 Bentley Snowflake. In 1885, W.A. Bentley, a self- educated Vermont farmer who adapted a microscope to a bellows camera, became the first person to photograph a single snow crystal. "Snowflake" Bentley would go on to capture more than 5000 snowflakes during his lifetime, not finding any two alike.
Each year the Jericho, Vermont Historical Society commissions us to make one unique snowflake design based on Bentley's original photographs. The 2020 Snowflake scatter pin pewter charm measures 1 ¼” tall x 1 3/8” wide. 2020 is on the back as the identifying date that it was introduced to the collection. A portion of all sales support the Historical Society. The photograph of the original snowflake is shown as well.
This scatter pin is not available wholesale. It is only available for retail and cannot be discounted with a promo code. (Due to the fact that this is a commissioned piece for the Jericho Historical Society.)
