This ascot stickpin is exactly that. A metal 'stick' with a soaring raven 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 also worn on lapels, 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 debonaire while doing so.
The raven has a 3/4" wingspan and is cast in solid sterling silver oxidized to enhance feather definition and othert fine details of this beautifully sculpted little carving. It is securely mounted on a 2" white gold plated ascot pin with matching fitted retaining clutch that contains the sharp point.
