Vintage Sterling Silver Dachshund Dog Brooch
Cute little dachshund pin seems to capture the dog in a walking mode.
Rather than having the ear hanging or facing towards the rear, this dog's ear has been gracefully turned forward, as if the wind was coming from behind. This gives it a wonderful dimensional appeal.
You can see the reflection of the ear on the dog's face if you turn it a bit. And when you turn it and look from a slightly different angle, you can see the dog's eye prominently etched. This pup is really cute.
Entire pin was crafted from one piece of metal with some deep etching where the legs meet the body. Pin also has a lovely patina and a soft finish. You can see some reflection, but not clear enough to use as a mirror.
Pin is sturdy and weighs a full 16 grams. Back is incised Mexico 925
Measures 3 1/4"x 1 5/8".
Last photo shows this brooch and a Parra sterling dachshund brooch that may still be available in my shop. They are both cute dachshunds, but distinctly different in styling.
