Here is a silver pin in the form of an afghan hound, seldom found. This 1 1/2" by 1 1/2" sterling pin has been sculpted to simulate the form of the hound. His tail is curled up; he is alert. His ear has been pushed out, giving dimension. The workmanship is good. The pin is signed on the back; the signature looks like an inverted "JB." It is an estate piece; probably from the 1980's. The pin is in excellent original condition. It weighs 7.6 grams.
