I believe this Roaring 1920's Dog Pin depicts either a Greyhound or a Great Dane. I have owned it for many years.... I procrastinated over cleaning it but I finally gave in (the reverse is untouched). Canine jewelry has that sleek simple uncomplicated modernistic streamlined design that the Art Deco period is known for. The finish of the metal is highly polished & as a result he looks a bit 'brindle' but that is the reflection of my yard trees. You can see his musculature from the shapely outline... aside from right at the neck, he is fairly flat. There is a deliberate 'bend' at the neck & he appears to be looking up at his master for direction. The only adornment is a Ruby color glass? cabochon that is set right into the metal.
