1930s solid silver & enamel brooch from Japan. This is designed as an elongated stylized beetle. Its wings and thorax have stripes of emerald green and deep purple. The head has a bit of green with yellow eyes I'm obsessed with the eyes on this bug!
About 1 5/8 by 9/16. Please note a couple of faults in the enamel, as shown in the photo.
They are under the surface, so they can be seen but not felt. The pin catch is slightly misshapen and marked but fully functional. Pin stem is a little wobbly when its not engaged, but it is very securely attached so this does not affect wearability.Sales are final unless an item is found to be meaningfully misdescribed.
