Antique 9ct Gold Essex Crystal Pointer Dog Lapel Stick Pin Circa 1900
A fabulous antique Essex crystal stick pin with pointer dog scene, 9ct yellow gold.
This pin features a domed crystal with an exquisite pointer dog scene. The white dog displays brown patches and wears a red collar. It stands on green foliage and there is a nice grey iridescent background. The animal has been carved into the back of a cabochon rock crystal and then painted in minute detail with fine paintbrushes. When viewed from the front it seems to float, in three dimensions, inside the crystal. Offered in fabulous condition.
These stunning Essex crystal pins are becoming very rare to find at such nice quality. Like many similar items of the period the piece is not stamped but tests as 9-carat gold.
