Hello...I picked up a Cute little Turtle pin....French as it is marked..Made in France ..plus a Boars Head and then the maker...the mark is a diamond inside is the Letter M L with a Hand in between...so M hand L. Tiny marks so hard to capture...I am thinking 1920's...decorated with Marcasites..green eyes and a mother of pearl Body....

Can't help out much, I'm afraid. Looks like the kind of piece that may have been mass produced in the '40s or so. The boar's head mark stands for .800 silver.
