Edwardian pair of fox tie pins in gold, diamond & Ruby in original Garrards box.
An exquisite pair of Edwardian fox tie pins as follows:
A 9ct yellow gold fox head mounted on a solid gold bar brooch. The fox head measures 10x11x7.5mm and is decorated with a fur effect finish and embellished with tiny,
Ruby, gemstone eyes, beautifully made in 9ct yellow gold. Complete
with safety pin style, fitting.
This inquisitive little fellow has a
slightly wonky nose (tilts to one side), I have seen this before in
similar pins and believe it to be in the design.
Hallmarked: 9.375 (denotes 9carat gold), leopards head (london assay mark) K (date letter for 1905) together with makers mark C & F (Cropp & Farr).
His companion is a charming, smaller diamond mounted fox head, with eleven rose-cut diamonds mounted in silver again embellished with tiny Ruby, cabachon eyes. The fox head measures 6.6 x 7.6mm and is mounted on a 9ct rose gold bar. Complete with safety pin style fitting.
Hallmarked: 9ct (denotes 9carat gold)
presented in the original tooled leather box with cream velvet and silk
interior, the following is printed in the lid:
