This is THE BEST sport fishing pin I have ever owned! It is PERFECT for your favorite angler to wear on his/her hat or vest. Fabulously Detailed 2 piece pin features a pole... chain for the line and an entirely separate piece for the fish (I believe it is a Trout). The fish actually has a metal pin on the reverse (no clasp & never was one) to secure it at the 'end of the line'. You can see every scale and fin on the fish in addition to the reel and grip on the pole.
C.1935 Sterling Silver sporting jewelry MEASURES 4 1/4 Inches Long - that is just the pole... Fish is in a curved position and is ~ 1 Inch in all directions. The chain link 'line' can be adjusted... at its tightest he dangles 1 1/2 Inches off the end of the pole. Angler's pin is very lightly stamped "STERLING" on the back side of the reel and retains ORIGINAL fully functional locking clasp, hinge & pin stem. It has not been cleaned in may years & displays Old Dark Patina that attests to its age & highlights its fine detailing (could easily be removed if so desired).
You will find this RARE piece to be in VERY GOOD CONDITION! It would make an AMAZING gift or Very Special addition to your sterling figural jewelry ~ brooch collection... it will be a long time before another crosses your path. A dear old antique dealer friend of mine that passed away more than 10 years ago had a similar piece that he wore on his vest for over 25 years (thinking of you Jack).
