This CoroCraft rhodium plated sterling jelly belly angel fish brooch was designed by Aldoph Katz in 1942.

It is hallmarked CoroCraft sterling with the pegasus mark on an applied plaque on the reverse. It is 2 1/2" x 2".Lucite jelly bellies were copied from figurals originally done in gold and rock crystal.
