May we all look so elegant walking our pets! This exquisite enamel brooch was produced nearly 100 years ago, in several color schemes. You may have seen this iconic art deco lady and dog in other forms as well - they've appeared in decorative items and accessories, both in antique and reproduction. Rare in the wild, we were pretty psyched to find this original 1930's brooch, finished in the most vibrant of colors. Look closely and you'll see texture under the enamel, giving glow and movement to the fluffy Borzoi's fur. A special piece for those who love dogs and deco!
Vintage metal and glass enamel. Unmarked. Measures 2" tall, 1.75" wide, on 1" pin. Very good condition with one small chip to enamel at the top of her hat.
"Affectionate, loyal, regally dignified" is how the American Kennel Club describes Borzoi, a calm but speedy breed that has captured the imagination of artists for centuries.
