This pin is marked Coro, but not Sterling. It is the same pattern as the 1944 design by Aldoph Katz, but I think it’s later; this could be a reproduction from the 90’s. It has the Lucite belly and the rhinestones and it’s done very well, but not being Sterling it’s not part of the original jelly belly’s. It measures 2” by 1 ¾”. It is in excellent condition.

This pin has a Lucite clear belly that is reverse carved, so technically it’s a “Jelly Belly”. Generally a “Jelly Belly” is gold coated silver (Vermeil) pins done in the 40’s, but I’m going to put this pin in that category. It measures 2 ¼” tall and 1 ½”. It has a safety clasp and is in good conditions! The brass is gold coated and has some age to it, you can tell by the pictures. This is really a fun Pin!

This Frog measures 1 1/8” by 2”. It is signed CORO Sterling. Now comes the weird part! He is shaped just like the Coro Duette Frog Fur clip Pin done in 1944. Only that pin has rhinestones, not marcasites, and they were fur clips not pins. You can see that Duette on page 169 of “American Costume Jewelry” by Brunialti. If you look closely, I think the fur clip was altered to a pin. Someone must have loved this frog dearly to have changed it. It’s in wonderful condition, even the Vermeil is not worn! The Lucite belly has a few bubbles in it. You’ll probably never see one like this again.

Here is a rare pin! It measures 1 ¾” by 1” and is marked NORMA Sterling. There is another mark, but it’s unreadable. He is gold washed , Vermeil, but some is worn off, or is very light. He has a green rhinestone eye and an oval Lucite stone for the belly. He can be seen in “A Tribute to America Costume Jewelry” by Brunialti, on page 143. This circa dates this pin to 1944-45, but there is nothing actually known about this designer or company. He’s in good condition and cute as a Duck!

Here is another Norma and her most Treasured one! It is the rabbit with the top hat. . He measures 2 3/8” tall by 1 ½” wide. He has a red rhinestone eye, a clear rhinestone in his cane, and is marked Norma Sterling. He is circa dated 1944-45, along with other Norma Pieces. There is nothing actually known about this designer or company. He has wear to his vermeil, so he looks just slightly gold, more silver, but is really in good shape.
