Superb Vintage 1950s 14K Gold BaumF NYC Lion Head Diamond Stick Pin
Striking Design, No Reserve, Free Shipping
This is an exceptional vintage lion head stick pin by BaumF of New York City in the 1950s. Rendered in fine 14K yellow gold, this pin features a majestic figural lion's head with eye-catching diamond accents. Harvey Feder and Irv Baumstein (trademark BaumF ) crafted extraordinary jewelry and were the originators of the first lion's head ring, a design that was copied (rather inferiorly) the world over. They were especially noted for their men's, bridal, and cocktail jewelry.
The 2-3 point round brilliant cut diamond in the lion's mouth is accented by 1-point single cut diamonds in the eyes. All diamonds have a VS clarity and IJ color.
In overall excellent condition with minor surface scratches and abrasions to the gold consistent with age and use. Measures 2" total length. The head is 13/16" x 11/16" x 3/8". Total weight (not including the pen end stopper)
