This lovely bird duette is referred to as Calopsitta Duette in American Costume Jewelry 1935-1950 by Brunialti. There is conflicting information on when it was patented. I've seen it as anywhere between 1939 and 1941. Whenever it was it is a lovely piece with lots of crystal rhinestones and beautiful enameling. The original owner of this duette had someone apply metal pieces to the back so that it would no longer come apart to be worn as two fur clips. I was able to remove them but the plating in those areas on the back has been marred. There is only minimal enamel wear that is only seen upon very close inspection. The roller portion of the safety clasp is missing but the pin stays secure without it. It measures 3 11/16 inches by 2 1/8 inches.
Your jewelry should reflect your style. If you don't see something at Lucky Lady Vintage that suits your style, let me know. I have a huge inventory that isn't online yet.
