Vintage Antelope Brooch, Gerenuk - Broche Antilope. Vintage Jewelry by My Chouchou on Etsy.

Lovely Vintage Antelope Brooch in silver tone! It looks like the African Gerenuk antelope mixed with a little fantasy element! It has a very faint green varnish. You pretty much only see the green in the crevices. There is some verdigris and surface wear, mostly in the back (see pics). If something has been overlooked, please know that it's not intentional. Very unusual brooch!

This brooch looks a little like the Gerenuk antelope. The gerenuk, Litocranius walleri, also known as the Waller's gazelle, is a long-necked species of antelope found in dry bushy scrub and steppe in East Africa, from Somalia and eastern Ethiopia through northern and eastern Kenya to northeastern Tanzania. The word gerenuk means giraffe-necked. Gerenuk are sometimes also called the giraffe-necked antelope.

Please keep in mind that these pieces are vintage, have a history and have been previously owned, which is what makes them unique. If something has been overlooked, please know that it's not intentional. Enjoy these wonderful pieces and imagine the stories they could tell! I list the age of the items to the best of my knowledge.

Colors may vary slightly depending on the setting of your monitor.
