Elegant and captivating brooch features a elephant with howdah (seat) in Sterling silver and signed LANG. The Sterling signature appears twice on the back as shown. This is a substantial piece that is simply gorgeous; a bit tarnished on the back but it can be polished if you choose to do so. Details abound including an earring on the elephant! The company LANG produced sterling jewelry for just over 30 years beginning in 1946 to at least 1977; many times their exquisite silver brooches have movable parts and other interesting details. This is a nice size and measures just over 2 inches wide and 2 inches high; condition is great.
