Towards the end of her career, Judith Leiber designed a line of accessories for women that included jewelry. Each item was crafted with the same impeccable standards as her purses. The items were diverse and often huge and statement making. As far as brooches are concerned, this pin qualifies since it is extra large at 3 3/4"h. It is part of a series on the zodiac signs and this one is for those born under the "aquarius" sign whose symbol is a water jug. However, the pin is so designed that it can be worn by anyone who appreciates an unusual brooch.The pin is oval shape and it is sort of like a picture within a picture frame. The frame is gold tone, both textured gold and shiny gold. It is decoratively striated so that there is depth. The "picture" also has dimension and it is done in shiny silver tone and textured silver tone is the background. There is an ancient lady kneeling and pouring water from a large jug. She is sculptured out of shiny silver and is very detailed. The jug and its representation of poured water is no less than genius. The entire "picture" is amazing and remarkable. The "picture" is slightly recessed within the frame. The back is a textured gold tone and the silver tone picture is attached with tab like fastenings. The pin closes with a safety lock. There is a hook at the top to add an necklace. The "Judith Leiber" identification flag label is on the back. There really isn't any significant issues to mention, tiny bit of pitting on the silver magnified by the camera. The pin measures 3 3/4"h x 3"w x 1/8"d. This brooch is so interesting and unusual. Although it was designed for aquarius babies, the picture is so generic that it could be worn by anyone. It is simply not obvious that it is a zodiac item, it could pass as just another lovely scene pin designed by the master,Judith Leiber! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
