I’m not going to tell you that this brooch is exquisite, or gorgeous, for the best word that can describe this turtle pin is just plain SWEET.
It is just about the sweetest pin I’ve come across.One look or even one touch of this darling turtle brooch and you can really appreciate its true beauty.
It has a marvelous patina and feels so soft to the touch.
Brooch does not lie flat, intentionally. Rather one side is lower than the other so it really looks just about animated when worn. This turtle seems to be walking along its merry way, rather than just attached to your apparel.
Measures 1 ¾” x 1 3/8” and weights a hefty 12 grams.
Front foot has a hallmark that I can’t determine. Underside of one foot is marked Sterling with most of the middle letters worn smooth.
