An unusual tie pin of a cockerel that was made circa 1900-1910. In English jewellery the cockerel or rooster was a symbol of courage and fortitude. In the Chinese zodiac, it conveys fortune, fidelity and protection. So this little tie pin is quite special. It was made circa 1900-1910 and is set with rose diamonds and has been enamelled in red on its comb and has a cabochon ruby eye. His beak has been enamelled in pale yellow. All our tie pins come with a stopper at the end of the pin. All our tie pins come with a stopper at the end of the pin.
