This trio of baby birds is ready to fly the coop!
Modelled as fledglings perched together on a gold tree branch, the 14K yellow gold dimensional pin is very finely crafted with superb workmanship. The birds' bodies contain gorgeous life-like downy-soft baby feathers and detailed fluted wings. Each bird's eye is set with a twinkling red ruby (the centre bird has two ruby eyes). The beaks and feet are made from smooth gold.
This is a heavy pin at 11.3 grams. Dating to 1940-50, it is in excellent condition, with no damage at all. Measures almost 2" long by 1" tall.
A long gold pin at the back secures this heavy brooch to your sweater or coat. Closure is the locking spring ring clasp. Very light surface scratching, otherwise a pristine piece. Stamped "14K". Unfortunately, no maker's mark to be found.
"Oh, the summer night, Has a smile of light, And she sits on a sapphire throne..." B. Procter
