Calling on K9 lovers! This antique 18ct Gold Essex Crystal dog stick pin could be the newest addition to live alongside your other furry friends. You are sure to become mesmerised by her orb of Rock Crystal with a charming chihuahua poised at her centre, who we believe is named 'Margot' - Just adorable!
In order to achieve the 3D effect of her intricate dog, a technique called 'reverse intaglio' has been used. This is when a gemstone has an intaglio carved into the flat back. The intaglio is then also painted realistically with oils so the image appears three-dimensional. This can also be known as 'Essex Crystal'.
Packed with splendour and steeped in history, she is sure to tick all of your boxes! She even has her highly sought-after French Eagles hallmark to top it all off. This Essex Crystal stick pin is a wonderful opportunity to own a fantastic piece of Victorian jewellery!

VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT. This antique 18ct Gold Essex Crystal dog stick pin is in beautiful condition throughout. The Essex Crystal is completely polished, with no signs of scuffs, scratches or nicks to its settings. The 'G' in the word 'Margot' has worn slightly, but other than that her Enamel is superb!
