Elegant Classical Revival Stickpin

Whiteside & Blank Classic Revival stickpin with peridot. (J9001)

Swags and Peridot

An arch with blooming roses festooned with bell flower swags frames a yellow-green peridot.  The sultry green gemstone rests atop a column of stylized leaves with scrolling ends.  This stickpin reflects the elegant Classical Revival style favored in the early 20th century.  Created by Whiteside & Blank in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

The back of the stickpin is as beautifully and solidly crafted as the front.  Whiteside & Blank was a maker of fine stickpins and other jewels during the late 19th century and the early decades of the 20th century.  The maker's mark for Whiteside & Blank (an arrow piercing a crescent) and the gold purity mark ("14") are stamped on the middle reverse of the stickpin behind the pin stem.

Cost:  $435

Measurements: This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 7/8" long and weighs 2.3 grams. The top measures 3/4" by 1/2".
