Ciner's song bird. We spell it A D O R A B L E. Singing his heart out, Ciner's Tweety style fellow is enameled in sunny yellow with black / white eyes gazing upward. Incredible dimension and details in gold tone include his rooster tail mohawk, wide open beak, outstretched wings, heaving belly, and firmly planted claw feet. He's got a song in his heart that's got to be let out!
The brooch measures about 2 1/4 inches x 1 1/2 inches with a maximum profile of 7/8 inch. He weighs in at approximately 36 grams.
Condition is excellent / near pristine vintage. All components intact. All lustrous yellow, black and white enamel intact with no chips, nicks, cracks, discoloration or stains -- as fresh as the day it was applied by the craftspeople at Ciner. All gold tone finish intact, front and back. No dents or improper bends. No abrasions or scratches to finishes. Pin shaft has slight bend. Pin mechanism and locking wheel function perfectly. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Near pristine vintage.
The bird is signed on it's reverse within a rectangular cartouche in block caps: "CINER" no copyright symbol. Although difficult to date, design, style, materials, construction, as well as overall presentation suggest a 1950s-1960s vintage.
