Just Ducky: Antique Mallard Stickpin
Without this Edwardian stickpin you might go "quakers"! A representational rendering of a mallard duck in flight makes this 10k and 14k yellow gold with silver stickpin irresistible. Set with eighteen (18) rose cut diamonds, the wings spread away from the gem studded body in the action of flight. Green enamel appoints tail feathers and head replete with golden beak. A black dotted enamel eye gives vision to our avian creature. Please note the twist to the middle of the pin – a common practice in Victorian and Edwardian stickpins to assist in holding the pin in place within the fabric.
The stickpin is accompanied by an antique cream silk and tooled paper box embossed in gold with “Dreicer & Co. 560 Fifth Avenue New York” which may be original to the piece.
Date: Circa 1910.
