Amber Sterling Silver Turtle Figural Vintage Brooch Pin.
This Adorable Turtle Brooch was purchased in the Krakow market in the 1980s.
The body is a Jelly Belly of sorts using the Baltic Amber as its shell. Shaped amber is formed in some way in a press which means that pressing does not change the natural properties of amber. It changes only the shape of the natural layers inside the amber to form the shape used in making jewelry.
The details are wonderful to the textured feet, caged shell cover and black enamel eyes.
It is unsigned but fully tested to be 925 Sterling Silver.
This really cute turtle measures 1 3/4" x 1 1/4".
