She is wearing a lovely banana necklace and earring, recalling her famous banana dance at the Follies Bergere. This is an exceptional piece. It is the best image of the great Josephine in brooch form I have seen...

I think this little guy is really cute.

The penguin has some yellow trim and his eye is black. He is 2 1/2" tall and about 1 1/4" wide. The pin is in good condition and is marked Schultzx, as shown.

This is a brand new, never used Alexis Birtar carved lucite flower brooch. The center is a cluster of sparkling prong set clear rhinestone.
