This is a wonderful vintage brooch. It is a large piece. It is sterling silver with the body being encrusted with clear rhinestones. Extending from the back of the bird are eight elaborate "feathers" with foil backed oval citrine or topaz rhinestones and clear rhinestones embellishing the tip of each feather. There are two additional curled tendrils without stones.
This brooch or pin measures approximately 4" x 1-3/4". It is signed "STERLING" on the back in an oval cartouche and has a long rollover clasp. The brooch has not been cleaned or polished and some of the foil backing on the large oval rhinestones has worn away. Overall we will say the brooch is in good condition. This is a magnificent piece and will make quite the statement when worn.
