      Lovely- I think all your sea creature uploads are my favourites- this little turtle is so sweet and autumnal and really detailed- I adore his shell, little claws and striped head which is just like a real turtle actually! :P

      Outstanding turtle brooch. With gorgeous enameling and attention to detail make for a realistic piece. Given the number and the letter P, standing for pin would make this beauty circa 1964

      Thank you all for the turtle love

      Lauren thank you so much for the wonderful kind praise, I am so glad you like my sea creatures and will try to find more nice ones in the future. I do agree the detailing is fab on this turtle & I fell in love with that beautiful back shell - you know I love rhinestones in animals but when the enamel is so colorful like this I'm won over

      Fantastic lovely compliments & great info six-0-one, thank you so much! I also think Boucher did an incredible job on this turtle, and I'm delighted to find out the year it was made, I will put that in the description and am very grateful to you for providing that - my book sources for dating Boucher pieces only go into the 1950s so I usually can't pinpoint the exact year made on later pieces and am so happy to find out :)

      It's a fantastic turtle brooch, Jenni, and I can't believe it's almost 60 years old.
      Even the back is a work of art.

      Thank you Karen for the terrific praise and observ, I never stopped to think of this turtle being @ 60 y.o., wowza! And the pearly enamel held up so perfectly, I'm with you that back shell is truly awesome, not only the sectioning detail but the great autumn colors. Boucher liked making this color blend plus a blue & green one, I'll bet you this turtle also came in that blend as well (I have some of his blue & greens like a great hibiscus flower, but more of his brown & gold colors).
