Antique Chinese Export Enameled Rooster Brooch

This is a large antique Chinese export enameled rooster gamecock brooch. The brooch is marked on the back MADE IN CHINA. It has a typical pin stem and and old style rabbit ear safety clasp. The metal is silver plate over copper. The rooster is vividly enameled is red, white, blue and 2 shades of green. I estimate that he dates from early 1900s.

This brooch measures a substantial 1.75" x 3".

Condition is overall good. There is pitting to the enamel but this appears to be how it was made. There is some wear to the surface of the enamel on the highest points of the head and some edges. Please see photos to judge.

Any USC Gamecock fans out there? This is a great rooster brooch. I am tempted to keep this fellow for myself.
