There is rhodium plated metal brooch with black and red enmael. There is some wear to the enamel of the pelican's bill. All the pave rhinestones appear to be bright.
There is a Hallmark that is barely visible Made in USA and a symbol which I cannot photograph which appears to be a star with circle made of dots (Fred Gray).

I think this brooch is probably from the WWII years in the early 1940s. The metal is silver colored- not Sterling, but likely pot metal.

The figures are 2" high and the chatelaine chain i 5". They are in good condition for the age in which they were made and adorable when worn. They are nor marked.

First of all, the set is big - the larger of the figured pieces are 2" x 1 3/4". The...
