This sure is one precious puppy! This perfect little pooch was handcrafted by highly regarded Italian jewelry company, Toliro. Gorgeous 18k yellow gold glows under the finest enamel work that perfectly captures the softness of fur. Its playful design is reminiscent of cartoons of the period– we believe this piece to have been made sometime in the mid-twentieth century. The gold has a heavy patina that indicates it could even be older. A single cut diamond sparkles from each eye, further giving life to this adorable brooch. This rare piece has been featured at Sotheby's for $3340, showcasing its remarkable value. The brooch is in excellent condition with minimal wear to the enamel at the top edge of its head. It measures 1 1/4 inches at its widest and 1 3/4 inches tall, and about 3/8 inch thick.
