Coro produced the Vendome line from 1944 - 1979. Named for a city in France, Vendome is associated with high-end Coro designs. This fantastic figural brooch, the head of an elephant, is composed of heavy gold-tone metal and wonderfully enameled in a naturalistic tan/gray color with black highlights on the ear. The tusks, end of up-turned trunk and trim around the eye is bright gold. The large blue sapphire marquise rhinestone eye is beautiful. A very dimensional brooch the tusks were cast separately from the head and the three pieces are fastened by rivets. It measures 3 1/2" in length and 2" in height and has a safety clasp mechanism. Marked within a cartouche "Vendome" and the copyright symbol. I see no wear at all; as near mint as you will find, perhaps never worn. If you collect great Vendome or figural jewelry this is a great find.
