This stick pin is so cute with the poodle's two toned hair in a show cut. His gold body has a nicely done hand hammered like surface with the platinum being all in dimensional swirls to simulate long curling hair. To finish off the dog's lovely detailing he has what appears to be a dark garnet cabochon for his eye.
Both the gold and platinum top are in excellent plus condition with no cracks, rips, holes, dents, scratches or repairs. The pin stick is straight and has a good point. The platinum top swirls appear to have been created from hand engraving work so with a 10 power loupe you can see a bit of gold peaking thru. This stick pin has always been a stick pin.
There are no marks as can be common to stick pins and the time period. Rich has acid tested and will guarantee a minimum of 14kt. gold. The poodle measures 11/16" long thru the widest point (nose to leg) and is a 1/2" tall from his foot to his head. A delightful stick pin for a collection or for a man or woman to wear.
