An adorable and highly collectible pin circa the 1940's!
This dark brown Scottie dog is made of carved wood with a lucite eye. It looks to be made by Elzac, as it has many of the signature characteristics of the brand. Elzac jewelry was not signed. Pieces were marked with paper or foil tags which were removed before wearing.
Elzac company was founded in 1941. Their distinctive and unusual designs made with nontraditional materials became incredibly popular in the early 1940's. The company flourished even with the labor shortages and material problems associated with the WWII. While the early Elzac designs were predominantly made of heavily carved wood, almost every imaginable material was used to embellish the brooches, including leather, fur, ceramic, and Lucite. Elzac designs evolved from fancy flowers to all types of animals, and human faces and full bodies. Simple pin mechanisms were either molded into the ceramic, embedded into the wood, or glued onto the backs of pins.
