This signed realistic Bull is Gold wash over Sterling Silver also known as Vermeil. A very HARD to find figural that is so realistic. The Bull has a texture that is called Diamond Point Texture. Also the Bull has a small prong set ruby in the eye. Measures 1-1/4" wide and 3/4" high. Weighs 3.9 grams total weight. Les Bernard was extremely inventive, combining materials and design styles previously unheard of in jewelry manufacturing. One of their registered trademarked innovations was a process called "Diamond Point Texture" according to the book Masterpieces of Costume Jewelry by Joanne Dubbs Ball and Dorothy Hehl Torem. They show an example of a prancing horse, whose entire body is covered with tiny indentations made by a diamond-pointed tool. Will make a great addition to any fine costume jewelry collection.
