For anyone in the racing world this stickpin is a good thing to wear! It is carved in reverse. Rock crystal is very difficult to engrave. It is much harder than most semi precious stones, so it took a particularly skilled craftsman to execute such pieces. The crystal could fracture then the job was lost. This crystal is mounted in 18ct gold and was made circa 1870.
