The brooch has 22 round-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of .50 carat, and an onyx cabochon eye. The whimsical bull was from the VCA 'La Boutique' collection, first introduced in 1954."This brilliant collection of whimsically cartoonish animal clips charmed new customers with their playful expressions and quirky compositions. Still highly detailed and made of precious metal and gemstones, the animated brooches made for great gifts and, because they were a bit more affordable than the Maison's typically pricey pieces, more people could indulge in these adorable animals. As they added more animals to the collection each year, customers soon found the need to collect these curious creatures, turning them into one of jewelry's beloved collector's items."

The business became the pre-eminent house of this type in Buenos Aires. At the beginning of the century, his two sons traveled to Paris where they established a branch location. One son, Oscar, coordinated all business matters as well as arranging with designers to create jewellery in the current styles which were then shipped to Buenos Aires and their other branch location in New York City. Both locations were closed sometime in the late 1930s or 1940s, but the flagship store in Buenos Aires remained open until the 1960s. Oscar Ghiso died in Buenos Aires in 1985." Christie's web.
