This figural pin has wonderful design work. Note the superb well rounded and curved horse head with detailed features and mane. The bridle and whip/crop include wonderful fine detailing and an illusion of beautiful braiding to the whip. This pin will make a wonderful present for a riding enthusiast of any type or age. It would be very useful as a tie clasp also.
The gold is in excellent condition with no rips, dents, holes, scratches, abrasions or repairs. I did find evidence of a gold test rubbing on the end of the crop's handle that I am reporting to be accurate but it is not visible without a loupe. The pattern definition and accent lines for the entire pin are excellent. The pin hinge, pin stick and clasp all appear to be the originals and are in smooth working order. The pin stick is fairly straight and has a good point.
The maker's mark and gold mark are on the clasp and read (symbol) 14K. The pin measures 2' long x 5/8" tall at horse's head and weighs 7.1 grams.
