      Crown Trifari Patent number 166,355 on April 1 - 1952. I believe this is the same brooch although the drawing is slightly different, placement of the pearls. :- )

      From the Park Ave Zoo animal series, called ladybug & seen in Trifari Mother's Day jewelry ad from '52 (you can google it)

      Mrstyndall, Dawnlady1, and Watchsearcher - thanks for your comments. So glad you like this bug too.

      And to all the collectors who admired this brooch and gave it a love THANK YOU! I'm surprised this brooch has received the response of 15 loves in so short a time.
      Thanks to
