Victorian 14kt/Sterling Diamond + Ruby Fox and Hunting Hound Pin
A unique pin from the Victorian (1880s) era! Crafted in 14kt yellow gold topped with sterling silver, this sport-inspired piece features a fox being chased by three hunting hounds. The sterling topped animals appear in motion, with the fox at one end and the trio of dogs at the other end, all resting atop a yellow gold bar. The four animals are studded with sparkling old Rose Cut diamonds and delicate rubies dot each eye. A gold straight pin and c-catch clasp can be found on the back, allowing the pin to be secured to the wearer's garment of choice. This pin would make a lovely addition to any Victorian collection!
Measurements: The pin measures approximately 2 7/8" long and about 5/8" at the widest.
Condition: The overall condition of the pin is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and silver setting. All of the Rose Cut diamonds and rubies are intact and securely set. The pin and c-catch clasp are in good working condition.
