I have not identified the type of bird, but it is very possiby a hummingbird with its long skinny beak. It is in superb condition. Bright yellow and blue enamels and bright marcasites add to the exotic design. It measures 2 1/4" high. The markings on the back are 925 "foreign".

I believe this was made during the American occupation of Germany in the late 40's. Certainly, it is consistent with the designs of Alice Caviness during that period. (See the last photo with an Alice Caviness catalog page of items). One of my favorites!
