    Another treasure from Moonstonelover: Darling 60's or 70's 2" long goldfish pin. The body is a hard plastic varigated orange and yellow, carved with detail, not bakelite but great quality. It isn't hollow like thermoplastic cabs from the 50's and 60's. Much nicer. When I was shooting it outside just now a neighbor wanted to buy it. LOL and NFS like all my hoard.

    Included a picture of the back, no marks, but nice quality.

    Thank you MsCrystalShip for your ID of Hattie Carnegie style.

      Lovely fish.I always think how much work is needed with making all that stuff - not very expensive,made of plastic,metal,rhinestones and yet detailed,artistic and simply beautiful.I adore all those creators.
    5. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago

      Such nice comments! lentilka - no I told him I needed to have it for awhile :-)

      Ivonne - I know, so much work for costume jewelry.

      Ms.CrystalShip - Thank you! It's definitely designer because the quality is there. I'll look up more Hattie Carnegie - thanks :-)

      Thanks friends: Judy, buckethead, Hel1, Fort, Mike, Ken, Scott and Kyra :-)

      How nice of dear Moonstone lover to send you this and your lovely diamonte pieces.
      I remember well her gorgeous collections of jewellery and glass. I hope all is well for her!
    11. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago
      Ms.Crystal - maybe they didn't think they were special enough?

      Karen - It was such a wonderful surprise. Yes, she has all her wonderful items, not selling but focus is on other things right now.

      Thanks Bijou for your love :-)
    12. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 4 years ago
      Good question.. why do designers sign some pieces and not others? I think the fishie is very special. :)
    13. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago
      They probably had pretty little paper tags and logo boxes. Thank you again friend for your ID. Since you did I've been paying more attention online and in my research books.

      Thanks Karen, Aura, Phil and Mani for your loves :-)

      Still love your orange fishy, Mary!
    15. valentino97 valentino97, 10 months ago
      Thank you dear! I can't believe I have 21 loves but probably because of the designer attributes.
