Marvelous antique figural stick or scarf pin dates from the 1890s to the turn of the century and is made of brass with white enamel on the lion’s head, which is set with glass stones for the eyes and mouth. The detailing on the head is truly remarkable, with every lock in the the lion’s flowing mane well defined and its faux garnet eyes seeming to glow with ferocity. A clear rhinestone defines the mouth.
The stick pin measures 2 ½” long, with the lion’s head approximately ½” in diameter. Excellent condition, with a slight bend at the top of the pin.
