Metallic cobalt blue enamel and sapphire blue rhinestones grace this multi- dimensional bird. His plumage is on full display, comprised of rich textured gold-tone feathers accented with round emerald green cabochons and sapphire blue and emerald green rhinestones.
The colors are rich and gorgeous; this has always been a sought after Marcel Boucher design.
The pin is signed ©BOUCHER, and is numbered 8068P, indicating early 1960's dating. A little difficult to make out the numbers, but I believe I am reading them correctly.
Size: 2 inches wide by 1 3/4 inches high"
Excellent vintage condition, all original. Gold-plated base metal.

“Marcel Boucher (1898–1965) was a French jeweler. In the early 1920s, he moved to New York City where he developed a passion for jewelry design, studying under Pierre Cartier as an apprentice. By the 1930s, he was working for Mazer Brothers. However, in 1937 he decided to establish his own company, which he called Marcel Boucher and Cie.
His classic jewelry designs have stood he test of time for craftsmanship and elegance, imitating fine jewelry.
