This full frontal head image of a male lion is nothing short of stunning. The gold-tone metal sculpture skillfully portrays his massive ruff of neck fur, rounded ears, flattened nose and powerful jaws. The black enamel stripes accent and further define all the facial features. This penetrating emerald green rhinestone eyes seem to follow whoever is looking in his direction.
The brooch measures 3" in width, 2 3/4" in length and has a safety clasp mechanism. It is a very substantial brooch and will look great on a jacket or coat. Because of its weight, I think it is too heavy to be worn with a dress. It is not marked by the maker. Near mint condition.
