A dachshund-shaped brooch decorated with a black enameled body, silver and gold pave set rhinestones, and red collar. The brooch is affixed with a locking c-clasp attachment and measures 1 1/4" long and 3/4" wide. The maker is unknown and the brooch is in good original condition but does show some age to the black paint and some loss of luster to the rhinestones.
Gold Tone refers to a base metal that has been colored gold on the surface, but has no measurable gold content. Gold tone jewelry is not recommended for people with sensitivity to nickle or other types of metals, as it can cause a rash.
