Delightful vintage turtle pin is a few steps up from the ordinary. The upper domed back is done in a black and white deeply enameled design. The border of the shell is framed with so very many beautiful sparkling marcasite stones. Each Marcasite is framed within a lovely beaded scalloped edge. Marcasites are encrusted on the head, feet and tail as well as on the shell’s border.
There are six articulated parts- head, legs and tail. All these extremities move freely. I show different positions in the photos.
Shots show light and darker pictures to show detail. Actual color is rich silver with sparkling accents. A tremendous amount of detail and very skilled workmanship went into making this piece. Please view the photos.
Stamped 925. Weighs 9.7 grams and measures about 1-1/2” long x 1-1/4” in width.
Condition is simply super. All stones are intact and everything works. Enameling is very neatly done with no enamel protruding over the silver frame.
