Figural jewelry does not get better than this! Linked by glowing brown cabochons, beautiful as an African sunset, are three exquisite hippos. Tiny green eyes sparkle against their gorgeous textured heads. Ms. Leiber outdid herself on this one, taking inspiration from one of the world's most spectacular animals. Embolden yourself with this awesome power piece!
Vintage gold plated metal and glass. Made by Judith Leiber, estimated 1970's. Measures 7.5" long; each hippo head is 1.25" wide. Excellent vintage condition. A truly fabulous find!
Hippopotamus amphibus is one of Earth's largest animals and Africa's most dangerous. At 3,000 to 4,000 pounds, these aggressive mammals are not to be trifled with. But they have a soft side too - they're mostly vegetarian and are known to frolic in the ocean. (Look up Gabon's "surfing hippos" and enjoy!)
