An incredibly lovely stick pin from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This wonderful piece is made of rich 14kt yellow gold and portrays the face of a lovable dog. His expressive face includes superb features, including folds within the face, prominent jowls, floppy ears and textured fur-like surface throughout the face. A pair of sparkling old Rose Cut diamonds represent each of his eyes - a beautiful finishing touch! The bar pin is stamped "14KT". This is an exceptional collector's piece that combines a charming design with superior craftsmanship!
Measurements: The stickpin measures 2 31/4" in total length. The dog's face measures 3/8" tall and wide, and is about 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the stickpin is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting and both diamonds are intact and securely set.
