SS Turquoise Earrings
Essex Crystal Fox Pin
Made by J.E. Caldwell of Philadelphia, one of America's most famous jewelers, this is a wonderful Essex Crystal red fox pin. The portrait is just exquisite, both in its wonderfully detailed reverse carving and its painterly expression. A pearl background adds a lovely soft light behind the fox. His laughing eyes twinkle and his smiling expression says "Catch me if you can!" This is a rare piece complete with makers marks and the original serial number. The rock crystal quartz top has been carved and painted, then mounted in platinum with a mother of pearl backing. It is surrounded by approximately 1/6ct of antique rose cut diamonds and a beautifully milgrained edge.
