This is a sweet little miniature stickpin or tie pin.
It takes the form of a little tiny horseshoe attached to a little pin which you would pop onto a tie or lapel as a little decoration.
This one is an antique example - and quite small in size. I have photographed it beside a UK pound coin to give it a sense of scale. A late Victorian or early Edwardian example.
It measures 4.9 cm in length. The width of the shoe is only 1 cm.
Good antique condition - not sure if one of the little diamonds has been stuck back in - but it is nice and firm in the pin setting - please use my photographs in close up.
I think that it is inset with tiny diamond and ruby chips - which will catch the light and give off a tiny twinkle when worn.
It is gold, not gold plate, and does have a teeny weeny hallmark on the back of the horseshoe.
It comes with a little antique box - which I don't think is original to the pin - but a good fit for the pin and keeps it safe when not being worn.
Listed at a bargain price - listed to take its more diminutive size into account. A stylish and more understated piece.
