This penguin pin has icy metallic jewel tone colors. It is a vintage design from the 1950-1960 era.
The penguin can be worn as a pin but it also has a bail, so it can be worn as a pendant too. The brooch is thick and weighty cast brass metal finished with glowing sapphire and emerald poured metallic enamels. The penguin has a clear rhinestone eye and the outlined areas are highlighted in polished gold metal.
This is a nicely crafted piece, vintage quality with substantial weight, and thick glossy wear resistant enamels. The entire pin is in pristine clean condition with no imperfections or flaws. The glossy enamels and the gold are sparkling with no scratches. The penguin is 2" tall x 1 3/8" wide or 5 cm x 3 cm.
Unsigned, the back is finished in chiseled gold metal with no wear. The original fine working safety clasp is in place. If you are serious about collecting penguin pins then you probably know that nice designs, new or old, are rather limited.
Some of the nicest penguin pins are very expensive, in the $ 100-200 price range. It is uncommon to find a penguin pin/pendant made in jewel tone sapphire and emerald sparkling enamels like this one.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation jewelry box.
