Vintage Lucite Carved and Painted Angelfish Pin

* This colorful vintage Lucite pin was probably made in the late 1940's or so, when large figural pins featuring animals and sea life where quite popular. This beautiful googly-eyed Angelfish has a transparent yellow body with painted red lips and a slash of red paint across the middle (hides the pin) and a deep blue and red tipped tail. The fins are painted golden yellow at the bottom, green in the middle and deep blue at the tips. All of the painting is done on the reverse side of the pin. There are two long carved gills on the front of the body and 9 lightly reverse-carved horizontal lines on top and underneath the pin mechanism. This is a colorful and fun piece of early Lucite jewelry that is sure to draw attention wherever you go.

* This great brooch is 2 3/4" from top to bottom, 2 3/4" from side to side and is 1/4" thick.

* This Lucite pin is in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or visible scratches. The enamel paint is bright and intact. The c-clasp pin mechanism is original and in good working condition.
