these little guys are just adorable!
signed Napier on the back, this vintage brooch shows two Scotty dogs in a happy, tails-up stance, with sparkly pavé rhinestone bodies, blue jeweled collars, & black enamel noses, all in a brilliant silvertone setting.
I found an identical pin listed on another site that said it was from the 80s-90s, but according to my reference books, this pin is circa 1950s-60s. The Napier signature is in an all-caps block font with the copyright symbol. This signature was used after 1955, and in 1965, it changed to a script font. Napier did use a block font again in the 80s-90s, only with a lowercase i instead of the all-caps version this pin has.
I've shown it next to a straight pin to help you gauge the size -- it measures approximately 1" x 2" and is in excellent condition. I found one tiny missing stone behind the top Scotty dog's ear, and that was almost impossible to detect because of the shiny, faceted setting. This little beauty has much more sparkle and shine than my camera was able to pick-up...if you like what you see in the pictures, I know you will love it even more in person ♥
