Fierce Dragon Stickpin

Link & Angell regal dragon stickpin (J9235)

Regal Dragon!

Link & Angell regal dragon stickpin (J9235)
A regal dragon watches fiercely from atop its perch on a golden stickpin.  The fiery beast is beautifully sculpted with finely detailed wings, rippling scales and a dramatically curving body.  The perfect  personal gargoyle to keep evil from an unprotected lapel!  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1900.

Victorian jewelers delighted in creating a menagerie of exotic and fantastic creatures.  Dragons, basilisks, sea serpents and griffins all graced the elegant jewels of the era.  This stickpin was created by Link & Angell, a maker of fine stickpins from the 1870s into the early 1900s.

The reverse of the stickpin (pictured below) is as well crafted as the front. The maker's mark of Link & Angell (an "L", "&" and "A" enclosed in three links of a chain) is stamped of the reverse beneath the "14K" gold purity mark.

Cost:  $445

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is just over 2 1/4" long and weighs 1.6 grams.  The fierce dragon top is 9/16" tall and just under 1/2" wide.
