This is a wonderful vintage hand carved and hand painted wooden brooch and earrings set depicting mallard ducks. Both the brooch and the earrings are flat on the back with a detailed body of the duck on the front. The ducks have very detailed carving, especially the wings, and the painting is colourful and reflective of the actual colours of this lovely duck in nature. The brooch has a glued on pin back with a roll over clasp and the fittings for the screw back earrings are also glued onto the wood with some glue visible. The brooch and earrings are both stamped with a maker’s mark and one earring clearly shows the mark as a circle with the letter c inside. There are a few small nicks in the paint, but very minor and, overall, the paint is in very good condition. I would date the set to the 1950s-60’s.
The brooch measures 2.5 by 1.75 inches. The earrings measure 1.25 by 0.75 inches.
A very unique set of vintage handcrafted art and jewelry in one. Fun to wear and definitely a conversation piece when worn.
