This large brooch is an absolute treasure! You need not be an ornithologist nor a bird lover to appreciate its beautiful craftsmanship and its splendid turquoise colorings. Perched high on its stand, it is crafted with the most care for detail and an eye for stunning aesthetics. Its head and plumage exhibit a beautiful blend of green/blue enamel with black detail which contrast with the Florentine satiny gold finish of the bodice.
We estimated the creation of this gorgeous pin Circa 1950s during the Retro, Mid Century period. It has a nice solid feel with a heavy 11.6 grams of solid gold, and has a stately posture. It closes securely with a push/pull (trombone) type closure, and is in excellent vintage condition.
