An extraordinary antique stickpin of a sterling eagle foot gripping a baroque pearl in its gold talons.
The workmanship on this fabulous, wonderful hand carved detail on the foot with gleaming gold claws gripping the pearl!
Very dramatic, the design is executed with precision and great attention to detail.
The stick tested gold with acid, the mark can be seen in the last photo though hard to read, there is a second mark lower on the stick that I can't decipher.
Total length is 3&5/8", the foot alone is 7/8" by 3/8", total weight is 5 grams.
Excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear, great oxidized patina accentuates the detail.
A very desirable theme and a beautifully constructed eagle claw stickpin c1880-1890.
Please view the large photos for the best detail.
