Dragon and Diamond Stickpin

French stickpin of rising dragon with diamond. (J9163)

Dragon Rising!

A fierce dragon rises aloft clutching a diamond in its mouth.  The Medieval presence atop this elegant stickpin is beautifully sculpted in 18kt gold.  Created in France,  circa 1890.

Around the turn of the last century French jewelers found inspiration in Medieval myths and created jewels inhabited by a fantastic menagerie of ancient monsters and hybrid forms.  This richly detailed stickpin is a wonderful example.

The dragon is as beautifully sculpted on the reverse as it is on the front.  Along the pin stem is stamped the mark of the Paris assay office for 18kt gold,  as well as an indistinct maker's mark.  The maker's mark is obscured by the curvature of the pin stem and has not been identified.

Cost:  Although this elegant stickpin has sold,  you will find many more beautiful stickpins in the Antique Stickpin Gallery.

Measurements:  This 18kt gold stickpin is  3" long and weighs 4.0 grams.  The dragon has a  3/4" wingspan and is 5/8" tall.
