Creed Vintage Sterling Silver Brooch With Hummel's Just Resting Girl
Isn't she adorable? Sterling silver with a gold vermeil finish and brightly colored enamels make this brooch unique. Creed jewelry is somewhat rare, with it's origins dating to 1948. They were eventually known for religious jewelry, making this piece one of their earlier designs. Modeled after Hummel's famous "Just Resting" figurine, this 'lil gal packs a ton of vintage charm in her small stature.
1 1/4" tall x 3/4" wide.
Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can. This may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos.
This brooch is in very good vintage condition. It appears to be hand painted, and as such the lines of enamel demarcation are not always perfectly even. There are small "bumps" particularly on her legs which we believe is the enamel as it adhered to small bumps in the sterling at manufacturing. We did not attempt to alter, or correct any of her enameling, as we believe this adds to her vintage charm. In addition, this piece is relatively rare on the secondary market and most collectors prefer items left in their original state.
Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe or magnification.
Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.
Average = significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos.
