This is a highly unusual antique Victorian period German Blackforest carved staghorn antler brooch depicting a deer being bitten by a dog. The antlered head of the deer has his ears back and mouth open while the head of the dog below appears to have grasped the deer's neck. The deer has a single b3ead set red eye. The collared dog is missing one eye and retains the other glass bead eye. The back of the brooch has a T hinged pin stem and C clasp. There is a center hole drilled from the top as well, where there may have been a bail at one time for wearing as a pendant. It would be easy to add one again if wished.

This brooch measures 1.5" x1.125".

Condition: Missing 1 bead eye. Possibly missing a bail. Both easy to reset.

This dramatic carving is far different from more idyllic carvings of deer in the woods. A perfect brooch for someone who hunts, or for someone who appreciates the rawness of nature.
