Vintage 18K Gold Race Car Flag Stick Pin
An elegant vintage race-car stick pin depicting checkers, also known as the finish line. The stick pin is made of 18 karat gold and then the flag has been hand-painted with deep blue and white enamel. The flag measures approximately 5/16 and the stick pin is 2-1/2 inches. The stick pin weighs 1.3 grams. It is a finely made miniature piece, which remains in excellent condition today. The stick on the pin has a nice twist detail to it, and the flag itself features some very detailed gold wire twisting work, that makes this piece stand out. The back of the flag has been marked with Benzie Co and 18ct. It is a British-made stick pin, circa 1920.
