Very charming vintage designer signed Tortolani brooch! This is a cute rabbit that is also signed and dated by the artist, Crislu 1963. Tortolani was known for making jewelry from pewter as a base metal, plated with gold or silver, and this piece is plated in gold. The body is a smooth, shiny finish and the neck, tail and inside of the ear is a textured finish, the finish on the textured areas is not as shiny as the body. It is in very nice condition, there is a scratch in the gold finish on the "flopped" ear, you can see it in the first photo if you use the "zoom feature", and the gold plate is a bit worn on the nose. The rolling latch of the pin works well and there is no bends in the pin. It is signed Tortolani on the back of the inside of the ear than is bent down, Crislu 1963 is signed on the underside of the body. behind his neck. It measures about 1 1/2" by 1 7/8".
