I'd obtained this from the original owner, who'd acquired it, she told me, in around 1965. Which makes sense as the institution was renamed the American Folk Art Museum in 1966. (Now THAT'S a drastic change!) This prettily colored sea dweller measures 3 1/4" long x 2" across his, er, snout? A wee bit of wear to the paint along the rim (not noticeable when the brooch is worn) but otherwise in excellent vintage condition with no chips or cracks.
