6cmL, high quality costume jewellery, in great condition by American company Lind Gal.
Lind Gal was created in 1952 in New York, supposedly existed until the end of the 1980s, since products of a later period are not found. Traditionally, the jewelers of this company used metal alloys of gold and silver tones. Also, there are jewelry pieces made of sterling silver and 14 carat gold. Often, when creating many jewelry, designers used ceramics and hand-painted enamels. Noteworthy, all decorations have a distinct mark on the back side. It includes the copyright mark and initials LG, or the same LG mark and letters in a heart-shaped frame.
One of the designs of this company was a touching series of humanized animals, released in the 1950-60s. Among these sad and cute animals carrying a sack on a stick are a turtle, a dog and an elephant. According to belief, Lind Gal loved cats, that’s why we can see this animal in various designs of his figurative brooches.
