Dressed all in black, Weiss' turtle is off and running in this '60s vintage enamel, art glass and rhinestone brooch. Black enamel or japanned metal legs dotted with black rhinestones also double as prongs for the large, cushion cut jet black art glass stone. Black rhinestone set head with piercing red rhinestones eyes and stubby tail complete the framework. A delightful, charming figural from the folks at Weiss.
