Art Deco Equestrian Stickpin

Tally Ho!

A finely sculpted profile of a watchful horse with alert ears and a small red gem (likely a garnet) set as the eye.  This equestrian stickpin was crafted in 14kt gold circa 1925.

From the mid Victorian period (about 1860) through the 1920s, equestrian and hunt-related jewelry was the sine qua non of the fashionable horsewoman or man.  The rich, fine details and clean, dramatic lines of this gold stickpin suggest it was created during the Art Deco era of the 1920s.

The reverse of this stickpin (pictured below) is as finely crafted as the front.  The back is smoothly polished and the edges crisply finished.  The pin stem is attached to the solid gold back with a sturdy collet.  The lower reverse is stamped with "14K" for the purity of the gold beneath an unidentified maker's mark.

Cost:  $385

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is  2 7/16" long and weighs 1.8 grams.  The top measures  1/2" by  just under 5/8".
