......a regal bird......
This is a 1920s/30s Art Deco era sterling silver and rhinestone pin, in the form of a large bird like a heron or paradise-like bird. He sports a turquoise rhinestone eye and has a row of clear rhinestones along the edge of one wing. The pin closes on the back with a well working safety clasp. The bird was gold washed at one time, which is common for that era, but most of the wash has worn away, more evident on the back with only traces on the front. Large and impressive!
