This long snout and angular face is that of a Fox. A very sly Fox with the biggest red rhinestone eyes that give him a rather blood thirsty look. The vintage pin is signed by NEMO (a mark recognized for Brier Manufacturing Co. and Little Nemo designs). The pin is in Very Good condition with the only sign of wear being very minor scuffing noted under magnification to one of the large red faceted eyes. The pin measures 1" tall. The gold tone finish is without blemish! The clasp is an older style hook that secures tightly. The NEMO signature in block letters like this began in 1955. The Brier Manufacturing Co. and their designs of Little Nemo jewelry ended in 1978.
Nemo produced a collection of animal faces with large rhinestone eyes. To date, I have seen this Fox, a Cat, Dog, and a Mouse. These pins make for an interesting and conversation provoking collection!
