This is a wonderful repousse antique brooch featuring two greyhound dogs, a bow hunter, and a felled buck/deer. It is good sized measuring 1 3/4 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches tall and has a T-bar pin with c clasp. It has amazing detail with one of the dogs laying down and the other sitting. They are attached with a chain and wearing collars are are a rich gold color. I believe the whole piece was gold washed over brass and has darkened over the years with nice patina. I'm sure it could all be cleaned to a rich gold but I prefer it the way it is so I will leave the choice to the new owner. The hunter is very animated with a quiver of arrows across his back and is blowing a horn. There is light green oxidation to some of the backside which can be cleaned up and a slight bend to the pin near the hinge. Free US shipping
