      A stunning brooch and gorgeous Viking Glass piece!!! They make a beautiful pair! :)

      This is really beautiful and unusual, the two fish are so ancient looking(I kinda have a thing for ancient looking fishes!) and with the star in the middle, it reminds me of some old seal or stamp? or maybe a tarot card or even on the door of some subterranean temple?! I can't believe both pieces are so old, it's amazing how well they have stood the test of time.

      Thanks MrsT, have to agree this oldie brooch was in great shape for age, the sharp seller had to know it was a book piece as they got a lot of $ from me for it but I'm a big Carnegie fan - great compliments & glad you liked the mushroom too!

      Super thanx Eileen, you and me both look forward to my zodiac posts, your Aries will be the next one up soon - I almost forgot Pisces with all my Carnaval excitement the past couple wks, don't ever want to forget any of my great CW folks' signs. Always fantastic compliments you are the best

      Thanks Broochman for enjoying both pieces & fab compliments, it took me a long time to angle the first photo just right to highlight these guys

      Lauren I love to see my pieces through your creative lens, it's totally spot on that the fish brooch has an ancient temple look, the designer sort of angled the Pisces words, fish and star to look that way. I am always super grateful for your terrific comments, thank you so very much

      Pascale my Piscean friend, I should have guessed you were a fish because you are always so kind! Hope you had or will have a wonderful BD & thanks for the lovely comment

      Thanks Ilikethings for the super compliment, I think I was really lucky to find these two pieces they seem to play off each other well

      Thanks as always Mary for the wonderful praise, I try to make my combo pieces interesting esp in the astrology dept which you know I love. I got the Viking mushroom at a good price on auction, maybe just hit it lucky as usually my auction buys are competitive - I'm the type to put a high first bid in, and darned if the other bidders go right to my max price! There are enough of these zodiac mushrooms still on the market but as usual it's a good idea to compare prices, I usually do a Google search first to see what's around

      Phil thank you so much for the excellent compliment, Viking did do a really nice job engraving the mushroom tops, seeing my pix again now I wonder did I really do the full two-fish etching justice though I tried, and I also like the little fringe lines
