A splendid example of an antique Victorian stickpin with a beautifully carved carnelian intaglio.
The carnelian is a deep burnt orange that is somewhat translucent when held to the light, the warrior carving is perfectly executed with clean lines and a perfect polish.
The rose gold setting has rounded corners, an inset of platinum embellishes the frame on all four sides.
The stickpin is expertly made with great precision, the gold work is simple yet elegant, the carved Roman soldier intaglio is stately.
The pin is substantial, it measures 3.25" total length, the framed intaglio is .5" by 5/8", the intaglio is just lightly smaller.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear.
Unmarked, the rose gold tested 15k with acid, the white metal tested platinum.
Total weight is 5 grams.
A fabulous antique stickpin and an exceptional work of art.
