Featuring a rare and fine antique 14k yellow gold, 3 dimensional, repousse figural brooch pin of lion's head with diamond eyes and a red stone in mouth. The whiskers and hairs are finely detailed. There is a hook on the back, as well as a pin, for hanging a watch, locket or pendant if desired. American made, probably in Newark New Jersey by one of the fine jewelry companies in that area in the late 19th to early 20th century. Not stamped, but carefully tested at 14k gold. Amazing, fine detail. Excellent condition! The safety clasp works well and snaps shut tightly. Circa 1900. Dimensions: a hair under 1" wide/high. Weight: 5.3 grams. Postage/insurance extra. Sales tax charged if sold in NY state unless valid NY sales tax resale number and signed NY state sales tax form provided.
