Signed PELL Bug Brooch with Huge Crystal Body
Unusual bug brooch from PELL features an enormous, faceted crystal bead for the body, The setting is silver plate, accented with crystal clear chatons on the wing, upper body, and eyes. There are no missing rhinestones although some have darkened a bit with age. It is signed on the reverse as shown. There is one condition issue, that being a small ding on the crystal. The crystal spins on its axis so you can wear this so that it doesn't show. It is small, and I wasn't able to capture it with a photo; the pin is priced accordingly.
The PELL company was founded in 1941 by the Gaita brothers and is still in business.
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: silver, Size: 1 3/4 inches wide by 1 1/4 inches from front to back
