This 40's vintage water carrier brooch is based on the patented Rise-Weiner design, dated 9/16/1941. There are some variations of the design. This is not a Rice-Weiner original, however it is still fabulous nontheless. It's amazing to think this brooch is 70 years old!

This unique piece measures 2.75" x 3". The shorts have bright clear rhinestones and the shirt is green enamel in a goldtone setting. The water jugs are beautiful wedding cake beads in red and green.

Overall, the brooch is in average vintage (used/pre-loved) condition, considering the age of the piece. There are no missing stones and the roll over clasp functions properly. There is a small red bead over the red wedding cake bead which is incorrect. I've seen several of these and there should be an end bell cap. This doesn't detract from the piece and can easily be corrected. The goldtone setting has considerable wear along with the enamel on the shirt as might be expected. Because the rhinestones are so bright they've probably been replaced (just a guess). Cleaning and/or polishing is left to discretion of the buyer as I don't want to damage anything.

Thank you for visiting.
