This adorable creature is a brooch or pin, dating to the 1960's. It is made of hallmarked 18 karat yellow gold and has also been acid tested as to gold content.
The owl is 1 3/4" long and about 3/4" wide. He has two green emerald eyes, each about a 2+ millimeter size. There is a lot of detail to the gold work. The body is textured and gives the impression of wings. He is sitting on a branch, with his feathers hanging off the back. The head is smooth gold with striated sections for the face.
The piece closes with a safety clasp. It weighs a substantial 12.6 grams, and is in fine vintage condition.
