Jewel of the day: Vintage Enamel Bird Brooch
1st Dibs seller De Maria says this is an eagle, but I’m not so certain. Regardless, I love the enamel feathers and fierce head butt of this lovely avian brooch. It’s scented with black dotted white enamel, and the eye is set with a faceted ruby. The seller notes, “Marked on the back “TA76″ The clasp is a pin with a security clip. Origin Italy, circa 1970/80.”
This is selling for USD$3301.55.
