This hard to find vintage Kramer for Geoffrey Beene Chinese Foo Dogs (also known as lion dogs) brooch (unsigned) measures 2 5/8" x 2 7/8".
The design and craftsmanship is spectacular and the weight substantial. There are clear pave rhinestones, emerald green teardrop rhinestones, emerald green cabochons for the eyes, light blue cabochons at the feet, one small oval robin's egg blue cabochon with faux marbling and one large teardrop robin's egg blue cabochon with faux marbling. The bodies and heads of both dogs have deep blue enameling. The goldtone setting is extremely detailed on the front and the back of the brooch is lightly textured .
Overall, it appears to be in good vintage (used/pre-loved) condition along with the roll over clasp. No stones are missing. The signature plate may have fallen off. There is a sold listing of this brooch (in pink) on Ruby Lane where you can view what the signature plate looks like. There is some minor wear to the goldtone setting and the enamel as might be expected and does not detract. Cleaning and/or polishing is left to the discretion of the buyer as I don't want to damage anything.
WARNING: collecting vintage jewelry may be addictive!
