I'm pretty sure this darling piece is in a book somewhere. It could have been done in the late 1930s or 1940s. I will try to find it and let you know! It is not signed, but that happens...

He is encrusted in clear rhinestones with some black enameled details. There is some enamel loss but this is applied after the pin was constructed and is cold "cold enameled." Therefore, the paint is not "baked" into the piece. The good news is that if you want and you are good at that sort of thing, you can touch it up without devaluing the piece -- but you must do it right!

The squirrel is holding a red berry. Now, his eyes are red, and that is perhaps a bit creepy but I guess they thought that is the correct color. I think would have done something a little less shocking -- like brown -- I'm pretty sure squirrels have brown eyes and they are actually quite cute! He is in good vintage condition.

Anyhow, this really special pin measures 2" by 1 5/8".
