Vintage Jezlaine Sterling Silver Pig Brooch, Pig Pin, Scroll, Cutout, Openwork, 3D, Figural, Piggy, Animal, So Sweet! #c177
I present today this whimsical little pig brooch from Jezlaine!
Jezlaine created an extensive line of jewelry pieces with this distinctive scroll design back in the 80's, and they were extremely popular. I think I still have one or two of them stashed away in my jewelry box!
This sweet Jezlaine brooch features a stylized three-dimensional pig. The pig's face, ears, feet and tail have realistic details, but the body is constructed of beautiful, swirling, cut-out silver scrolls. The openwork design of the brooch allows the color of whatever you pin it on to show through, which enhances it wonderfully. The brooch closes with a locking c clasp that operates properly and securely. It's a lovely piece!
The brooch measures about 7/8 inch long, 1 3/8 inch wide and weighs 6.5 grams. It is hallmarked "Sterling" on the back of the brooch. It also has a "C" for copyright but I could not find the Jezlaine signature. It's possible that it was covered by the pin back when it was soldered on. The style of Jezlaine scroll pieces is so distinctive that I am certain it is a Jezlaine piece.
This brooch is so charming! It's the perfect gift for the pig lover, pig collector or for anyone who loves animals. It looks great worn on a suit lapel and is ready to be pinned on your suit to brighten up your day! The brooch is in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear!
