Sir Alexander Korda (1893-1956) was a Hungarian born movie producer, making a number of notable Hollywood films before to relocating to England and founding "London Films" in 1932; he returned to the U.S. during the Wartime years, producing "Thief of Bagdad" (1940) and "That Hamilton Woman" (1941) and supervising production of the "Jungle Book" (1942), directed by his brother Zoltan Korda. The brooch is in the form of a highly detailed elephant's head with its trunk curled up to "hold" a loop from which dangle turquoise glass beads. The beads are knobby, mottled art glass, most likely hand crafted. The pin is hallmarked "Alexander Korda". The pin is roughly 1 3/4" wide x 2 3/4" long A seldom seen piece!
These turtles are referenced in both Ann Pitman's book on several pages and in Katherine Musetti's book in the figural section in several places.

. Coro Sterling Craft Goose in Flight Brooch is Bold in Flight and in Size and remarkable in detail. The brooch was designed in 1941 by Gene Verrecchia. As you can see, the wings are not only detailed, the front wing is curved as it is in actual flight. The goose’s neck is stretched outward, its tail feathers trailing behind. When you hear the sound of the wild geese overhead in migration and look upward, this is the figure we see in the great flocks.
