Tie pins were traditionally used by wealthy English gentlemen to hold their neckwear in place. This Victorian tie pin is designed in the image of a sword and is accented by ornate detailing. The handle is adorned with 3 genuine pearls and features an intricately designed bird's head at the top. The cross guard features a white enameled design around a yellow gold Eagle & Shield motif in it's center. The white enamel has recently been restored; and there is some slight discoloration to the top left of the eagle as seen in the enlarged photographs. The stick pin forms the blade of the sword and has a pointed tip. A yellow gold sheath, or scabbard is attached to the tie pin and accommodates the sword blade. The sheath features a detailed floral pattern accented by raised details and white enameled accents. This piece is in great condition; but, there is a slight bend to the stickpin as can be expected with an antique piece. Don't miss out on this fine collector's piece that could be worn as a tie pin or stick pin!
This tie pin weighs 3.3 grams. The piece measures 3" (76.2mm) long without the sheath and 17/32" (13.3mm) wide.
This piece has not been cleaned in order to protect it's original vintage integrity.
We guarantee this piece to be 14k gold as stamped. Please check out the enlarged pictures.
