9ct Gold gold riding crop brooch with a fox head centre. A very sturdily made brooch or Stock pin made in the 1930's by Payton Pepper Ltd. who sadly, are no longer in business. They closed their doors in 1997 and have been missed as they never compromised on quality.
The pin and catch are in great working order and there is a small attached ring for a safety chain to be added if desired. It measures approximately 8.1 cm (just over 3") long and weighs in at approximately 6.2 grams, which is quite heavy for a brooch of this type.
This brooch has only had a simple clean and the pin tightened as nothing else was needed.
All vintage items have been worn and loved before they find their next owner, so they should always be worn or used with a little more care than a brand new piece. Some minor scratches are normal. All vintage pieces I sell have been thoroughly cleaned and lightly polished when required. If repairs are needed before it's offered for sale, they are completed sympathetically. Thank you for looking and please have a look around the other items in my shop.
