Vintage colorful Karu's figural rabbit brooch of large bright blue eyed pear rhinestones with clear white accenting rhinestones is being offered for your consideration. This famous whimsical figural rabbit brooch is in excellent vintage condition.
Karu, Karu Fifth Ave, Karu Arke Inc were the trademark names given to the imaginative and high quality crafted lines of jewelry produced by Kaufman & Ruderman of New York. They were in business from 1940 into the 1970’s with the Karu Arke Inc. line named use starting in approximately 1954. As a side note famed comedian Andy Kaufman was the son of founder Mark Kaufman. Pieces of it are fairly scarce in the market place today and always a joy to find and offer to you!
Large bright blue pear rhinestone eyes predominate Karu's rabbit brooch face, his red enamel teeth give him that silly whimsical grin and OH THAT rhinestone bow tie; what wonderful facial features indeed! We have also seen this brooch referred to as the bugs bunny brooch, but do not believe it is affiliated with the cartoon character. The brooch measures a large 2 7/8 inches by 1 1/8 inches and is signed Karu Fifth Avenue in a rectangular cartouche on the brooch's backside. The brooch displays desirable light age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish and under close or magnified inspection some light desirable peppering in the rhinestones may be observed, nothing in our opinion that detracts from their stunning appeal only that that affirms their age and authenticity. This brooch is a fabulous addition to any wardrobe accessories collection for wear or display! (J3342)
