This is a very pretty vintage hand painted and hand carved wooden Blue Jay bird pin. It has blue and green coloration and has nice details. It has twisted wire legs and feet. It has a thick coating of clear lacquer over the painted surfaces.
Condition is good vintage. There is a touch of paint missing from the very tip of the bird's beak. There is a small "missed" unpainted area on the tip of the tail and the clear lacquer goes over that spot.
It is marked on the back with a small red hand painted number or mark -it looks like 14-1 .
The bird measures 3 inches long and about 1-7/8 inches tall.
The pin shaft on the back is attached by two sharp prongs forced into the wood and there may also be glue under there.
Styled like a Takahashi bird pin but this does not look like a Takahashi. It is probably a similar style of pin that may have been made around the same time period.
