Description

Rather sweet little insect stick pin in a gold metal (gold plated? Didn’t want to test and ruin if not gold!), where the ‘head’ of the insect is a rub over collet set stone. Possibly a garnet but again I haven’t checked - it’s a nice deep red.

The body of the little bug is beautifully decorated with a chased design.

There are no markings to pin or head of stickpin. If anything I think that’s more likely to be precious metal or plated, and the pin base metal - but just selling as untested.

Measures:

Total length including pin is a little over 2 1/4”

The round decorative head is a little over 1/2” in diameter.

Condition:

There is a little verdigris to the edges, I’ve not overpolished. Otherwise good and it would certainly make a lovely gift.

*please note the antique velvet display box is not included, but it will one in the modern, vintage style black presentation box as shown in last picture*
