This ascot stickpin is exactly that. A metal 'stick' with a beautiful barn owl adornment at the top and a 'clutch' at the bottom (to keep you from poking yourself and to keep your pin secure). It's one of the oldest styles of pins there is, often worn on lapels, ties and lady's hats. It is very well suited to ascot wear over a tie tack or other style pin, because the long 'stick' helps keep the entire ascot secure, and the two flaps of fabric from separating while being worn. It also looks fairly deboinaire while doing so.
This well defined little heart shaped owl face is cast in solid sterling and is just a hair under 1/2" in diameter. The beautiful detail of this little piece invites admirers to approach for a closer look and is a very tasteful gift for that owl lover that we all seem to know and love. It is securely mounted on a 2" white gold plated ascot pin with matching fitted retaining clutch that contains the sharp point.
