    This 1 1-2" milk white and antiqued goldtone crab pin has white beads for eyes, this beading was frequently used by Alfred Philippe in his early 1950s designs for Trifari. As with my other vintage crab brooch, this one is missing one leg/claw

      Cute Jenni, he still looks happy even though he is missing one leg......or do you call those claws as well?

      Ahh...My B-Day is The 16th., Monday, and according to the signs of the Zodiac, a 'Cancer', The crab is my 'Zodi' friend!
      Nice! (I don't follow My horoscope however).

      I knew you would enjoy this Philippe Trifari Ken, wasn't it a cute touch with the white beads, it's similar to the ones in your recent camellias post, he was such a creative designer - thanx for the super comment

      Judy, because this pin does seem to have legs more than claws, I have added the word legs in the description, thank you for noticing! I am not a crustacean expert, I know that lobsters have claws, and the pincers on crabs look like claws, yet in restaurants we order crabs legs lol! Thanks for your kind comment

      Thomas, my Cancerian friend, I hope you have a wonderful BD and visit with your son, enjoy! BTW I don't follow daily horoscopes either, they are pure drivel, I liked more personal astrology like natal charts etc - notice I say liked past tense, just a passing interest these days

      Ditto Bonnie, another crab friend, I am really glad you liked this and the missing leg didn't detract, many thanx for the kind words

      MrsT and Mani I am glad you think he's a cutie too, always appreciate your great compliments

      Eileen I'm so happy you liked this crab and didn't notice the missing piece, you see much as I try, there is always a little wear to a vintage piece - but yes, his white cab belly is very pretty! Great compliments my friend

      Appreciate the kind love everybody
