This is a highly desirable book piece. Black and White flamingo bird fur clip. Found in "Collecting Rhinestone & Colored Jewelry" by Maryanne Dolan. Page 230. Quoted from the book "This 1930's flamingo renounced his pink heritage to parade in the typical shades of the time period in which he was made, black and white. The pose is still characteristic and looks happy. ....His body is entirely rhinestone covered, his plumage is black and white enamel, his feet are black enamel, his beak is yellow enamel with black accent line... One red glass eye. A delightful unsigned creature..... 2.75" long. /a very desirable bird". Listed price 600-750! Also is on the cover of Warmen's Jewelry Guide. This little guy has gotten lots of exposure and is a very desireable piece for serious collectors! This particular example is in fabulous condition with no wear to the white metal. There is just a touch of enamel loss on the tip of beak. The stones are in fabulous condition and a sparkling and bright. He is just fabulous and wow what a price!
