Cravat / Scarf and Stick Pins have been popular for over 100 years...worn by both men and women, mostly between 1880-192.  Stickpins are a fascinating subject for study and more importantly a wonderful object to collect and to wear. They are a very personal form of adornment and reflect in a subtle way the personality and taste of the wearer.

The period from the late eighteenth century, when the wearing of stickpins became fashionable, to the beginning of the twentieth century was a period of great change and also of an enormous spread of wealth. It was a wonderful time for the jeweler, who was able to experiment with new techniques and create new designs.

Stickpins reflect all these developments in the jewelers art; in miniature. The first stickpins were simple and consisted of clusters of stones or single stones or plain gold; sometimes two were worn linked together by chain. By the early nineteenth century jewelers were producing more daring designs and found a willing canvas for their jewels on the cravats and stocks of the young dandies of the Regency era.

This vintage silver and needlepoint stick pin or stickpin measures 3" in length and the flower shaped needlepoint head measures 9/10" diameter.  Unmarked as to maker.
