Gold Lobster Brooch 1950s Vintage Jewelry
I could not take pictures of this brooch without craving lobster. I am a lobster lover and during my days as a professional scuba diver in the FL keys I collected, by hand, thousands of lobsters every year. I joke that I had so much lobster in the freezer that I had to use 6 tails in a lobster quiche just to use them up! Really great quiche! Those were the days.
This pin is not a FL lobster pin but a Maine lobster as depicted by the large fat claws. Made in the 1950s, this pin is made of satin etched yellow gold metal with beveled and polished gold antennae.
The lobster is a thick weighty cast and exceptionally well made; a designer made pin but not signed. Actually, it is the nicest all gold lobster pin I've ever seen in my 30+ years of collecting vintage jewelry.
Medium in size, the lobster is 2" long x 1 1/8" wide or 50 mm x 28 mm.
The entire pin is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. The back has the original fine working safety clasp.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation brooch box.
