1950's Silver-Plated Wheaton Terrier Brooch with Chains

This fabulous Wheaton Terrier pin/pendant has silver-plated chains to form and flatter its floppy facial hair and mane, a use of new materials that was daring in the 1950's. Hidden beneath its mane are black chaton cut pronged-in round rhinestones to form the ears, eyes, nose and mouth. Too cool! book piece[See "Costume Jewelry, the Great Pretenders", p. 109.] height: 3", width: 2-1/2"
