    I found this little tree frog marked "Reja Sterling" sticking up out of the ground in my garden. Unlike most Reja brooches, he isn't vermeil, and the original stone on his back wasn't clear. The eye that remains is emerald green glass. He dates to the mid-forties.

      Thanks Vintagefran! I found myself outside with a trowel looking for the stone, but thankfully reason prevailed. :-)

      I would have been right there next to you, with a strainer in my hand !
      reason would not have prevailed, as I would STILL be looking ;)

      Only been here for 10 years, artislove, so someone awhile back really missed him. Still haven't totally given up on finding the rest of him. Never know what might turn up next time I till that patch of dirt.

      Just found this site today!,
      Type in " sterling frog pin raja, "
      There are pictures of your pin available, you might want to look at several to try to determine which is the original stone for this piece.

      Thank you citlikeit! I found one that had green eyes, and an "amethyst" body.
