Styled on a Victorian hunting pin, we believe this beautifully detailed fox head and riding crop pin was made slightly later in the 1920s. The fox's face has a lot of detailing, including fur like marks, and has a 3D shape to it. The crop also has lots of lovely detailing too.
We originally bought this pin to convert it into a neckalce or ring, but then changed our minds. Its beautiful as is, but would also make a lovely statement conversion piece.
The pin is made from 9ct gold and is hallmarked on the reverse 9 375 for 9ct, the maker's mark E.S&Co, Birmingham, England, and has the date letter Z which we believe is for 1924. It weighs approx 3.3g.
Size - The pin measures 57mm long and at it's widest point (the fox's face), 13mm.
Condition - The pin is in good vintage condition. The pin is slightly mishapen but this does not effect the fastening and is still wearable. There is also a working safety catch to ensure that the pin doens't come loose when worn. There is some surface wear to the gold, including some rubbing under the fox’s eyes.
