It is hard to believe this magnificent brooch is not signed. It is gorgeous! It is well made, heavy, huge, and quite dimensional. It measures almost 4 inches wide by 3 1/2 inches tall. The metal looks like pewter or pot metal. There looks like a spot on the back where a signature rectangle may have been; alas it is gone so we may never know who made this. Lovely condition!
Symbolic meanings abound for the goose including, as a Christian symbol, providence and vigilance.
