A salute to the classic race cars of the 1930’s my “Grand Prix” wearable sculpture brooch is stylish & fun. This is unique/one-of-a-kind; and the first in the series of unique Grand Prix race car brooches. It is made of pewter, brass, nickel silver and sterling silver. It has 5 moving parts.  The wheels spin, the steering wheel turns, the hand brake goes up & down and the exhaust pipe swings left & right – as if to aid in steering.

This brooch measures 2 1/2 inches long (6.5 cm) x 1 1/8 (2.8 cm) inch high and 5/8 inch (1.5 cm) deep.  It weighs just over 1 oz.  My signature and © are on the back. Like most of my wearable sculpture brooches, it comes with a frame, so that you can display it when you are not wearing it.

It is available with the frame pictured or, for a little less, without the frame.
