Alsatian Type Dog 9k Gold Brooch Pin Vintage c1960.
Cute & charming, this is a fantastic brooch pin of an alsatian type dog in 9ct yellow gold dating from the 1960's.
We believe the brooch may have been made from an older bar brooch with a charm or pendant added to the front, we think this due to the makers marks. The dog itself is from the very collectable maker Georg Jensen Ltd, the mark 'GJLd' can be seen to the rear of the dog. The gold hallmark that is usually found below is hidden by the bar of the brooch. The brooch is marked 'M&M9c', the maker & the carat of gold. Good secure clasp & pin with the brooch having the added peace of mind of a safety pin.
The brooch is well constructed & apart from the makers mark clue you would think the brooch was made in one, please see the pictures to judge for yourself.
