I can't help it... I keep hearing Frank Sinatra sing "Mack the Knife" when I look at this ADORABLE Sterling Silver Brooch. I think it is the imaginary bubble I see coming out of his mouth.... LOVE those lips! This Three Dimensional Mid Century Modernist Silver Fish was created by the QUALITY silver jewelry company BEAU as part of their Sculptural line "BEAUCRAFT". I was quite surprised when I turned it over & saw it wasn't signed by the well-known jewelry company “ORB” - Otto Robert Bade (who worked as a designer for Rebajes before he went out on his own).
GREAT Looking 60 +/- Year Old figural silver accessory can be worn in virtually ANY direction... MEASURES just ~ 2 1/4 Inches Lips to Tail, a Max of ~ 1 1/2 Inches N-S. It is clearly Marked 'BEAUCRAFT STER' on the Reverse. You will find this NEMO look alike to be in VERY NICE CONDITION! Designer Signed Silver accessory has a deliberately duller finish (not mirror-like), retains Original FULLY Functional Locking Clasp, Pin Stem & Hinge... has been gently polished/cleaned & appears to have been manufactured with a protective layer of lacquer.
Would make an WONDERFUL Gift or Addition to your Scandinavian or Danish Modern jewelry Collection!
