Caroline's Jewelry with a Past is offering a sterling silver Victorian/Edwardian sailboat stick pin c. 1900. This stick pin features sailboat with full rigging. The boat is 5/8" tall X 3/4" wide (maximum dimensions). The entire length of the stick pin is 2-5/16" overall. The pin stem is twisted to ensure a "grip".
Sporting jewelry became very popular during the Edwardian era circa 1900-1915 because the new king of England, Edward VII was famous for being a playboy and a gambler.
In symbolism, a sailboat represents a journey and the adventure of being carried along by the wind.
