LAST CALL! 25% OFF! Offered is a unique deco style celluloid brooch or pin. This little piece of whimsy defies description in terms of its shape. We have decided to call it a tadpole. It has a bulbous "head" and a flared "tail". A ring of clear rhinestones serves as a collar (in our opinion). True to its watery origins, the colors are in teal and sea green. Ruby Lane fan Jane has the following comments: "I suspect what you have here is an old pin which commemoratedsome important comet. Since celluloid has been used in jewelry making since approx 1907, and Comet Halley appeared in 1910,perhaps your pin was meant to celebrate Halley's appearance, or possibly a later one." Thanks, Jane--sounds like a sound idea to us. This has a C-clasp closure. The pin measures 3 1/4 x 1 1/4. Just a fun and unusual piece for one's collection. Item j4737a
