This very unusual Lalique glass and metal turtle brooch was probably made in the 1970s/80s as it does not appear as a current production. As designsare limited in number when they go out of production they become increasingly collectable. The 'shell' is brown, slightly opalescent glass, yellowy green as light goes through it, on a gilt-metal mount stamped Lalique. It is in as-new condition. It is quite heavy, so cannot be worn on light-weight clothing. It is 1 7/8 x 1 1/2 inches: 50 x 40 mm overall
