ELEPHANT (CELLULOID?) BROOCH! SIGNED "FRANCE DEPOSE"

Please scroll down for additional photos.

Featured in this listing is a precious brooch signed "France, Depose".

The brooch is one and five-eighths inches wide and one and three-eighths inches wide.

The elephant scene is encased in a gold-plated frame.

Sweet! Sweet! Sweet!
