Victorian 14K Gold Baroque Pearl and Lion Stick Pin
A regal, 14 karat yellow gold antique stick pin featuring a baroque natural pearl at the center of a lion's head. This stick pin has a fantastic architectural design, combining organic decorative motifs with more angular forms. The lion has been stylized, and with some charm opens his mouth really wide as if to yawn. There is some nice detail at the lion's head, on his mane and ears. This animal pin is a fine example of the craftsmanship found on Victorian era jewelry. This stick pin has been marked 14KT gold on the side. The baroque pearl is in excellent condition. This pin is a wonderful piece to any antique collection. Perfect for a Leo; makes a great gift for any lion, king of the animal kingdom!
The stick pin weighs 2.4 grams and measures 2-3/4 inches. The pearl measures 3.5mm x 4mm in size. Circa 1890.
