  1. Thank you Mrscrystalship Love this piece. And by the way my pink schreiner brooch cleaned up very nicely. Love that too. I can't tell you how many pieces I've picked
  2. The more I look at these I really believe they are not coral but a hard plastic... celluloid.

  4. I did Google 1928 and it does look like the earlier unmarked pieces. Thank you madam for the tip.
