Striking Essex Crystal of Boxer Dog Pin
The Boxer dog breed was brought to the United States around the beginning of the 20th century. The Deutscher Boxer Club established a breed standard for Boxers and the American Kennel Club (AKC) approved them for registration in 1904. The first Boxer Championship was awarded in 1915.
Perhaps this 14k yellow gold bar pin mounted with an Essex crystal of a Boxer is in homage to that championship award. No matter as the canine featured is as handsome as handsome can be and well represents the standards.
A right profile has been carved as an intaglio on the flat side of a rock crystal cabochon. The chiseled features, erect ears and dark brown eyes aptly convey the intelligence and watchfulness desired in the breed. Hand painted, the coloring is subtle and superbly realistic and adds to the three-dimensional trompe l’oeil effect enhanced by the mother-of-pearl backing. The Essex crystal is set within a circular 14k yellow gold mount atop a gold bar pin.
Measurements: 1-7/8 inches (4.8 cm) in length by 9/16 of an inch (1.5 cm) at the widest. Weight of 5.4 grams (3.5 dwt).
Date & Origin: Circa 1910 – 1920 and is American in origin.
