Here is a fantastic vintage stick pin made of brilliant 14 karat yellow gold. The pin depicts a beautiful stag-head and is in excellent condition.
Stick pins were at their most popular during the late 1800's and have become increasingly collectible in recent years. This is a beautiful example.
The top of the pin features a beautifully rendered stag or buck's head.
It is depicted with incredible depth and dimension; you can see the lovely detail to the animal's fur and antlers.
A tiny glass bead in a rich shade of chocolate brown accents the stag's eye.
For centuries, the stag has been a powerful symbol of strength, endurance and purity.
There is a tiny mark on the reverse of the pin that reads "14", indicating the weight of the gold.
The piece has been professionally tested to ensure the purity. Even the stick is rendered in solid 14 karat gold.
As you can see, the pin shows some very light patination and wear but remains in outstanding vintage condition overall.
This piece would make a unique gift or addition to your own collection.
