As promised in the previous collective post of paste stones beasts brooches :-)
Here is he!
The little fellow described by the seller as unmarked bears the French boar's head hallmark on the C clasp.
Detail is amazing, very thin fingers, gold backing and even his little tongue!

He joins the lizards hoard!

    Hi Racer and Agram! Pleased to see you on my lizard post, thank you for your loves and comments :-))
    This kind of animal jewelry is from Victorian era, was the rage then to wear creepy animals (spiders, moths, lizards, bats, snakes...). A kind of "beauty and the beast" concept, lol!
