Bird of Paradise Brooch*
Strikingly colouful brooch crafted in silver in the form of a bird of paradise seen perching on a small branch and holding what appears to be a small berry in its long beak.
Its outspread wings and extremely long tail are highlighted in multi hued enamel and also set with marcasites which add extra sparkle.
The feathers on the head and body of the bird are also enamelled and the overall attention to detail is clear to see.
Various marks on the back include the initials L.S, these presumably being those of the maker who unfortunately is unknown to us.
Late Art Deco era and measuring 9.5 cm from the forward wing-tip to the end of the tail, with the width being approximately 7 cm.
