Designed by Adolph Katz for Coro Circa 40's. This book piece sterling set in vermeil color is in wonderful Vintage condition. All stones are original and have great life, even the small rhinestones are all clear with good sparkle. The Lucite Jelly belly's are clear. There is some small wear however it is minimal wear and or patina.
The fur clips are nice and tight. This set does not have a frame clip to allow it to also be worn as a brooch. That has been factored in to the pricing. They are wonderful and highly collectible pieces. They are marked Sterling on top of fur clips, one has lost some of it's vermeil by marking and is silver color. Also marked Sterling coro on both fish body's.
Measure just over 1 3/4"'L and 1 1/4'W.
