A sweet pair of Penguins in carved and reverse painted Lucite from the 1940's with embedded pin just in time for winter! These fellows measure 3 inches by 1 3/4 from beak tip to toes. The white striations resembling feather features really pop against the yellow. The pin works great but there are a few minor issues I must list so I took numerous pictures to highlight these with a strong magnifier. The penguin on the right has some minor scuffing on his head. The penguin on the left appears to have had his beak glued back on. Unless it is held at certain angles these are hard to see but worth noting. I have priced appropriately to compensate for these minor issues but felt it didn't distract from their "face up" appearance. A great pair for a vintage Lucite collection.
