Dog Brooch Whimsical Hand Crafted Dog Pin Jewelry Silver Enamel Jean Haefele Artist Made Vintage Brooch Dachshund Red Silver Artsy Dog Pin
This is a rather comical figural dog brooch and will bring a smile to anyone’s face who sees it. This charming pin was made by a Minnesota artist, Jean Haefele. It is signed. The pin is some type of stamped silver metal with enamel paint. The pin is flat and without contours. Notice the clever little chain collar the dog is wearing. He also has a red and turquoise dog coat he is wearing. This pin is 3 1/2″ from nose to tail and is 1 3/8″ high. There is a good safety clasp on the back.
This pin is vintage but is in good condition. Pretty much looks as it did when the artist created it. There is a bit of a bend in the metal near the nose. I am not sure if the bend was intentional or came after. Whatever, it seems to go with the fun design of this piece.
Jean Haefele is an artist who has been working in Minnesota for several decades. She is primarily a watercolor artist. She created these fun pins in the 80’s.
This is a vintage item. It is expected that vintage jewelry will show some signs of previous wear. I have described the condition of this piece above, as I see it.
