A huge and spectacular vintage sterling silver bat brooch. This mega-sized bat has his wings wide spread, and has deep red eyes, which are made of two garnet cabochons. The brooch is c.1970-1980. The bat offers such a strong character and presence. The details are finely and realistically executed. The back of the brooch has the 'VS' V. SIMONE hallmark, and is stamped with 'Sterling'.

The clasp is original, and is in great working order. Overall the bat is in very good condition with natural patina.
