This charming sterling silver vermeil Coro Craft salamander has red rhinestone eyes and clear and aqua stones along his head and back. The aqua is such a lovely shade, one I only seem to see in 30’s and 40’s pieces, and the gold wash has a mellow warmth. You’ll love this piece!
Condition: Excellent, with vintage wear to vermeil at edges and mellowing of the clear rhinestones.
Measurements: 2.75 by 1.25 inches (7 by 3.2 cm)
Marks: Sterling Coro Craft with the Pegasus symbol
References: Per the Brunialtis in their “American Costume Jewelry Art & Industry” volume 1, the signature on this piece was used from 1942 until about 1945 (page 93).
