Jelly Belly Angel Fish Scatter Pins Pair 1950s Vintage Jewelry
It is very nice to find these tropical fish scatter pins together as a pair ! They could also be called a mated pair as they are a girl and boy pair! One fish has a pink rhinestone eye and the other fish has a light blue rhinestone eye.
This pair is not signed but they date from the late 1950s or early 1960s and were probably made in Japan, based on the unusual glass bellies. The orange glass has a white sugar beaded texture with hints of yellow,blue, and green. The fish are polished gold metal and they have long trailing fins like real fresh water angel fish. We all remember these fish in aquariums we used to have!
Both pins have been very well cared for and I doubt they have ever been worn. They are perfectly clean and pristine with no wear or imperfections. There is no loss of polished gold metal and both have the original fine working safety clasps. The pins are medium in size and each measures about 1 1/2" tall x 1 1/4" wide.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation jewelry box.
