This curious mid-Victorian stick pin was probably worn by a man – in particular, a hunter – as a charm. They’re often found on the charm bracelets of hunters, known as ‘Charivari’, and were popular in Germany, so steeped in folklore and tradition.
Grandeln is the German term for the canine teeth of deer.
