Not only is this owl wise but he also is funky and appealing. However, he is shades of blue, so perhaps he is a bluebird???? I leave that for you to decide!!!!! This fur clip or brooch was created by Fenichel, a company that made top quality jewelry during 1925 through 1959. Items sold today usually list for hundreds of dollars. He is large sized measuring 3 1/4"h x 1 1/2"w. He is done with enameling and diamante crystals. He is perched on a branch that is done in diamante crystals. The enameling is done in powder blue and sky blue with varying hues in between. His eyes and nose are black and they are dimensional. There are layered "feathers" contributing to the dimensional effect. His scrolled head also protrudes outwards and is most unusual. There are fine lines on his body. These are original and are not to be confused as crackling. They are part of this high quality design. All this is done on a shiny gold tone metal which can be seen bordering the owl figure. The back clearly shows the layered design and it is stamped "FENICHEL". The clip element is strong and tight. This stunning brooch from the 1940's is in great condition. The back shows expected age and wear. There is a small amount of enamel loss on the side of the owl's body but it is not significant. This owl is wise and all knowing. He knows that he will add a special accent when worn on your attire. "Hoot, hoot." Condition: Excellent - VINTAGE Condition
