A beautiful sport fox pin from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Most likely originally worn as apart of a hunter's sporting ensemble, this style of pin was typically worn to secure a mans neck scarf. Made of 14kt yellow gold, the pin portrays a long bar pin that resembles a modern day safety pin. At one end of the pin is the head of a fox, which is made of 14kt gold topped with sterling silver and encrusted with old Rose Cut diamonds. The fox head is beautifully textured and detailed and has two small natural rubies to represent its eyes. The pin is simple yet beautiful and could be worn by either a man or a woman.
Measurements: The pin measures approximately 2 1/2" wide, 1/2" at the tallest point and has a depth of 3/8". The fox head top measures 1/2" wide, 1/2" tall and a depth of a little less than 1/4".
Condition: The overall condition of the pin is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the gold or silver and all of the diamonds and rubies are intact. The clasp is secure and in good working condition.
