And his trunk is up!!! Putting politics aside, many people collect "elephants" and "trunk up" is a desirable feature symbolizing good luck. This is an amazing, pleasing and whimsical representation of a elephant by the jewelry fashion house Grosse based in Germany. Grosse (Grosse and Henkel) began in 1930 and quickly became the sole licensee for Christian Dior jewelry. Their designs are unique often displaying an airy and wispy appearance. This brooch is solid and dimensional. He is medium sized and is a bright gold tone. He is like a small "toy" and stands up vertically on his 4 feet. Although small, he has so much going on. He has large ears, tusks, an eye, a turned UP trunk, a looped tail and a bulbous body. In addition to this there are 4 tiny rings attached to his lower body. This rings dangle with movement. The pin has tremendous depth (remember it stands up!). The back is a matte gold tone and there is a round cartouche stating "Grosse 1967 Germany". The pin is in wonderful condition. The shiny gold tone is in great condition amazing for a piece over 50 years old. This pin is sure to bring smiles to everyone and hopefully good luck to its wearer! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
