Hobe very detailed and dimensional gold tone lion brooch with an oversized head and faux pearl crown. The brooch measures approximately 2 " x 1-1/8".
The lion has a combination matte and high polish finish. There is some loss of the gold tone finish on the nose and around the mouth. The finish on the remainder of the brooch is very good.
The back is signed within an oval cartouche: "Hobe" with a copyright symbol above. Circa 1958 to 1983 is when this version of the logo was used. The pin stem measures approximately 1-1/8" and secures with a rollover catch.
