Unusual vintage brooch in excellent condition. The winking bunny paua shell brooch is a replica of the Bellini winking bunny. There is no signature but there are hints of the Bellini signature attachments.
The design features a paua shell jelly belly set as the body in a gold tone surround, with a large goldtone head with one black rhinestone eye and a clear rhinestone nose. There is also a clear rhinestone in the bent over ear.
This is cute and whimsical and a great item for people who collect bunny jewellery. The back brooch pin may have been added later as the original Bellini brooch pin would have been the length of the bunny and there ap[pear to be marks where this might have been.
