Such a pretty parrot and what great plumage. What a face – just gorgeous and set with a bright red rhinestone eye. There is also another red rhinestone set by his talons.
Parrot is enameled in colors of red, green, gold, white and blue.
Enamel is transparent, except for his chest which is done in opaque white enamel.
Tail feathers are detailed...His crest and neck also have lovely patterns under the enamel. You can see the wonderful tooled patterns beneath the enameling.
The wing is the most wonderful of all, having many patterns outlined and filled in with colorful enamels.
You can see the flowers and their leaves very clearly detailed in the metal. And the minute detailing in the feathers in the wing is superb.
His talons are even filled with enamel.
Measures 2-1/2" Long x 1-1/8" wide.
The workmanship is outstanding.
Clasp works perfectly. All gold tone metal is bright and beautiful. Condition is excellent.
I also have a lovely enameled woodpecker brooch in my shop.
