This exotic bird is signed Coro, Adolf Katz designs for Coro. The jewelry company founded by Cohen and Rosenberg was in business from 1901 to 1979. Mr. Katz was a German Jew who emigrated to the United States between the two great wars (in 1924) and worked for Coro for most of his career. Adolf Katz is very often referred to as Coro most well known designer. This is actually not quite accurate since Mr. Katz didn't design jewelry himself. What he was in fact is Coro design director in charge of choosing which designs would be put in production and he would also file the patents for the designs. That is why it's commonly believed that he was the designer himself since his name appears on so many of Coro's patents.

We owe him the series of exotic birds that Coro started producing in the late 1930s. The now iconic peacock, bird of paradise, toucan and parrot designs are among the most well known and beloved that Coro ever made. Most of those designs became available in many versions: with different color patterns, with or without rhinestones, silvertone or goldtone, as brooch, dress clips or fur clips, etc.
