The orca is a very nice size, measuring 3 3/8 by 1 1/8". The pin stem has a bend but still closes securely. The brooch is signed R Wingitillin.
Vintage 1941 Unsigned Rice-Weiner Water Carrier Brooch: This wonderful figural Chinese water carrier brooch was designed by L.C. Mark for Rice-Weiner, with a patent date of Sept. 16, 1941, patent number 129,573. There were several design versions of this brooch, and this one is quite nice! The large figural has a red enamel shirt and rhinestone studded shorts. The rhinestones were mostly missing when I received him, the few left a disaster, so I replaced all of his rhinestones with clear, the original color. Two different size Venetian "wedding cake" beads are suspended from his pole. His plating is in wonderful shape, with slight wear to his nose and a spot on his cheek. He is a very nice size at 3 by 2 3/4", and is unsigned, but verified by design and patent.
