De Nicola Wise Old Owl Pin
Vintage brooch by De Nicola depicts a gold plated wise old owl, with spectacle at the tip of his nose. He is embellished with turquoise glass beading on forehead, eyes and chest. One of these beads is missing. His eyes are coral colored stones. The bridge of his glasses has the slightest bit of gold loss and the side of his head has some gold loss but it looks almost like his feathers are greying. These defects are easy to see in the photos, but not in person.
This wise old bird is very finely detailed with deep etching that emulates carving.
De Nicola Jewelry was in business from 1957 to the early 1970's. They produced high quality jewelry and had several lines. Eventually in 1970, De Nicola became part of Capri Jewelry.
Measures 2.19" x .875".
