Victorian Whiteside & Blank 14k Gold Enamel Iris Stickpin
* * SOLD * *
An antique stickpin, made in the likeness of a bearded iris. The flower is hyper-realistic in style with dimensional petals and subtle, variegated enameling— the detail is remarkably fine. The center of the iris is set with a small, old European cut diamond. This miniature bloom was made with unparalleled craftsmanship, by Whiteside & Blank. It will be striking, worn on a tie or lapel. Marked on the backside with Whiteside & Blank's arrow and crescent moon.
Excellent; no enamel loss.
Pin head measures approx 18.6 x 16.7 mm. Total length is 71 mm. Diamond measures approx 2.3 mm.
