WOW! This is an over-the-top pin and earring set in bright gold finished metal with lustrous Lucite stones of varying shades of pink and green. Looks like a runway piece.

The teardrop shaped clip earrings are about 1 3/4 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide...

Beautiful red strawberry with green leaves, made entirely of glass micro mosaic set into black glass, or black jet, and set in an oval gilded brass bezel. The bezel is quite fancy, being surrounded by an attached ribbon with flowers and berries. The micro mosaic is of excellent quality, and would qualify as being called pietra dura. The pin has a C-clasp and a tubular hinge. Unfortunately the black glass is damaged, with three cracks and a couple of tiny chips. Measures approx...

A truly whimsical, yet functional brooch with a retractable chain in the back to hold any number of items for the well-outfitted lady. These were marketed in the 1940s & 1950s as “The Paly Pin – A California Product.” This one holds a small lipstick, but would work equally well to hold a dance pencil, small pen, perfume bottle, or glasses (if they are not too heavy). The retracting mechanism is made by Ketcham & McDougall of Orange, N.J. The little lamb brooch is quite cute...
