Fierce Dragon

Link & Angell regal dragon stickpin (J9235)
A fierce dragon in mid flight prepares to lunge forward and breath fire on whatever has caught its wary eye.  This fiery beast is beautifully sculpted with finely detailed wings, rippling body scales and a dramatically curving torso.  He is the perfect diminutive gargoyle to  guard a wearer's lapel against evil spirits and other malefactors.  Created by Link & Angell in 14kt gold,  circa 1900.

Victorian jewelers created a menagerie of fine jewels featuring exotic and fantastic creatures.  Fierce dragons, basilisks and griffins all graced the elegant jewels of the era.  This stickpin is a beautifully detailed example.

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

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.
