The lines of the bird are sleek and stylish. The Lucite is a transparent peachy-pink color and the wings and tail have carved lines with a darker color in some parts for contrast. The realistic wings curve upward on both sides. It closes with a secure safety clasp and there is a bit of missing finish on the pin bar and some excess glue that can't be seen when worn.
Please see all the photos as words fail to adequately describe this wonderful vintage brooch. Lucite was invented in the 1930's and this style of brooch using Lucite and Wood was popular during that period. Most of my jewelry is vintage and pre-owned.
I describe to the best of my ability and try to take good photos to show the quality, beauty and possible vintage wear on items. Some vintage wear should be expected on items that have been pre-owned. Measurements are approximate and photos may be enlarged to show details. We are a smoke-free home.
