Outstanding vintage figural penguin art deco era marked Sterling gold or brass washed brooch! He is so charming! He has a rather coy pose with his head down and his beak resting on his rhinestone embedded vest. There is a wonderful rich amber faceted crystal rhinestone jelly belly. There are no makers marks, just the first three letters and the last letter of Sterling on the back right above the jelly belly. This is a high quality piece with a artful design and quality weight. This little charmer is not quite 2" in total height. There is wear to the plating on the back, but the front appears to be in good shape. The rhinestones are also good, with one appears to have been reglued at some point and not quite positioned correctly. It is an old brooch in great vintage condition!
