How charming and cheeky is this little frog? He has a wonderfully expressive face and his mood seems to be slightly different depending on the angle.......slightly grumpy and fed up, or bored as if his patience was wearing thin yet mostly so sweet and lovable :) It will make a funny and inspired gift for someone you might know ! And be such a conversation starter! He will look equally graceful on a ladies scarf or sweater or a man's lapel. You could even give him ( or her? ) a name ! :)
He is not hallmarked but we carefully tested him and he is 15 carat gold, making his birth place to be England. He is well over 110 years old and looks great for his age ! His handsome froggy body is made of solid gold of a yellow- greenish tone and is beautifully chased all over. The suitably poppy eyes are lovely old mine cut diamonds set in silver bezel settings. The top of the body features a natural baroque pearl secured on a gold peg coming out of his neck. We feel that this pearl is a later replacement perhaps as it has been drilled on the other side as well. This was probably done some time ago and the pearl, which measures 11.8 by 8 mm fits very well in the space. His main body is 0.87 inches long and the pin is 1.06 inches. His height from the pin to the top of his back is 0.46 inches. The brooch is 0.85 inches wide. He weighs 4.7 grams.
