This chirping bird is a classic Coro brooch. The colorful enamel is Royal Blue, Yellow and a bright Cherry Red with Orange highlights. The beak is Sunny yellow on the top and bottom and cherry red on the inside. The eye is an Pink RS and the entire chest is loaded with pave set rhinestones. He sits atop a branch done in Brown enamel ending in three Green enameled leaves that have pave set rhinestones at the edges. This is Rhodium plated so the back is still wonderfully shiny even after all this time. The mark is almost completely gone but this is definitely an early Coro piece. If you look around Ruby Lane and the web you will see many examples of this handsome bird.
SIZE & CONDITION: This is nearly 1 3/4" high by nearly 2 1/4" wide and is in Very Good condition.
