The British Museum
Since we've been looking at the Hull-Grundy gift to The British Museum, let's continue with this attractive gold cravat pin. The pin features a medallion struck in gold with a profile of the goddess Diana sporting her usual attributes of a crescent, and a bow and arrow. Originally, her collar was set with three diamonds, but one is now missing. The medallist's and sculptor's monograms, a warranty mark and maker's mark are stamped into the medallion.
The portrait medallion was designed by Louis Armand Rault, circa 1900.
