PASTE salamander brooch with green and clear rhinestones, Germany

Price: $238.00
Description PASTE salamander or lizard figural brooch with green and clear rhinestones set in silver, marked "800" for 800/1000 sterling, 2-3/4", with a slight dent on the back.

A similar piece can be seen in Deanna Cera's book, "Jewels of Fantasy" on page 145, and again in her book "Amazing Gems" page 46 where she dates it to 1900-1910 and attributes it to Germany.  What a fun pet critter to wear!   View    View
