      Very nice and detailed little crab, I love the little red eyes, he's so well made! His little claws are adorable too, I definitely see him creeping about up the side of a rockpool somewhere! :P

      With thanks to you all for the love

      Lol Damon, thank you for the very kind & fun comment, yes we wives can give you the business...and as for sideways walking crabs, nothing prepared me for seeing sand crabs on a beach in Mexico, all of a sudden you'd be walking along & little sand holes appear, out comes a side walking crab! A bit unsettling on a vacation beach :)

      Thanks Celiene for your lovely praise & love for this silver crab which was a special find for me

      Glad you enjoyed this crab brooch MrsT, I really like the marcasite & mother of pearl touches, thank you for your sweet comment

      Lauren thanks for your superb comment & insights, I can see this guy creeping around a rockpool now, cool image! It truly was well made with realism plus a bit of fantasy

      Thank you Karen for your fab compliments, this was one of those rare find goodies - I usually scout around for astrology symbols, saw this crab & thought, how unique and a perfect brooch specimen

      Thanks so much Daisy for your great comment, I know you appreciate quality jewelry and I do cherish this, it is my third antique silver figural along with a dragonfly & panthers on a globe, and they are really special to me

      Scott thanks for your truly kind compliment & seeing the beauty in this silver crab, I'm always very grateful to you

      Thank you vintagelamp for your awesome comment, so glad you enjoyed this crab, he is getting quite a lot of attention here!

      Many thanks Katherine for your super praise & giving this the wow factor, isn't it amazing that something from bygone days has such realistic detailed flair

      hahaha i love crabs , i use them as gift ware for clients porcelain plates with crabs on it , the chinese word for crab = pang hsieh and i use it as a homophone message because hsieh also means thank you

      Thank you so much for your super & fun comment Waki, I'm sorry I did not notice it until just now - I do not get email notices for my post comments like most people, perhaps because I use a gmail address. Crabs are such cool sea creatures, that's great that you give your clients crab gift items, and how cute that your home phone message is another meaning for crab :)
      Best, Jenni

      hahaha i love you kid =A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same (to varying extent) as another word but differs in meaning. A homophone may also differ in spelling. The two words may be spelled the same, as in rose (flower) and rose (past tense of rise), or differently, as in rain, reign, and rein. The term "homophone" may also apply to units longer or shorter than words, for example a

      greetings wakiphrase, letter, or groups of letters which are pronounced the same as another phrase, letter, or group of letters. Any unit with this property is said to be "homophonous".
