This set of Fanciful Early 60s Goldfish Figural Pins had been named Splish and Splash by my youngest daughter. And that is exactly what they look to be doing as they play and hop onto your favorite jacket or coat.
Just like real Goldfish they don't take up too much room. Both are 1 1/8" long (nose to tail) and just 1" high (top to bottom). But don't let the small stature of these tiny fellas fool you. They are well constructed and chock full of details. Such as each having a pattern of scales on both sides (front and back), bright shining crystal stones to demark the Gill Slits (Five 1mm clear stones here), the Tail fins (Eight stones here consisting of three 1mm and five 2mm clear beauties), and each has a total of five on the pectoral fins.(three 2mm stones, two 1mm stones). Then we can see that each has one beautiful red sparkling 1mm stone for his eye, and each are detailed around the eyes to give them the smiling personalities they happily show you. Lest we forget to mention it let me point out the glass faux Turquoise and Coral beads on each little fishie. Three Coral Colored, and two Turquoise Colored for added texture and fun.
Condition of both of our aquatic friends is excellent vintage. There are no problems that I can see to point out to you. The stones were set with glue at the factory and have held all this time. The pin mechanisms are nice and tight and the thumb latch holds well. They are unsigned.
I do have one caution for you however, even though these little fish look like they were born to swim, to keep them looking their best do not immerse in water. Gently cleanse with a damp (not wet) cotton swab. Moisture is the enemy of jewelry set with stones like this. It can cause them to discolor and even fall out. This is why Splish and Splash have stayed in such fine condition.
As always, postage can be upgraded should you need it fast and not see that price listed. Just email me and I will be happy to work with you.
