Colorful bee brooch features enameled accents using the champleve technique, in which indents or cells are carved, etched, die struck, or cast into the surface of a metal object, and then filled with enamel. The result is a stained glass effect. The eyes are ruby red cabochons. The wings of this bee are applied using springs, which causes them to shake, or tremble, with the wearer's movements, hence the term trembler. This is large, and measures 1 3/4 inches in length; the wings can make quite a racket as they move. Condition issues are as follows: the wings don't exactly line up (see photos) because one of the springs is a bit twisted. Also the enamel on the face is applied rather carelessly, going outside the lines (so to speak). Overall this is a great brooch, and with its bright colors and noisy wings, makes quite a statement. It is unsigned.
I have adjusted the price according to the condition.
Remember, whether you buy one item or ten, shipping costs are the same.
