An amazing piece of Trifari jewelry in the form of a jelly belly circus seal. This pin is composed of a sterling silver base metal that has a light gold tone vermeil over it and is accented with beautiful white gemstones. The seal has a white rhinestone pave set in it's ear as well as a green glass cabochon bead for it's eye. The creature's tail as well as it's flippers are covered in pave set white rhinestones which are all accounted for and look great. The most amazing parts of this pin is the large deep aquamarine green brilliant cut glass stone that the seal is balancing on it's nose as well as the lucite jelly belly center that makes up the body section. The aquamarine green glass stone measures 12mm in diameter and really pops out at you. The tip of the top part of the prong holding the stone has been worn down but the other three hold it in place just fine. The lucite jelly belly is also perfect having no scratches or chips at all. The back of this item has a nice pin and clasp closure and is signed "Trifari" with a crown over the "T" on the back of the seal's head. The signature "Sterling" is on the back bottom and the patent number is also on the back of the tail reading "Des. Pat. No. 135188" dating this item to March 9th, 1943. This pin measures 2 1/2" long by 1 3/4" in width and is in good condition with only the one prong tip missing and some wear to the gold tone vermeil finish from age.
