While back in the UK at Christmas I bought this brooch. It is 15ct gold not marked, the setting is silver there are Ceylon sapphires, rubies, diamonds pearls and if you look closely at the eyes I think one of the stones is a emerald and the other a demantoid garnet. If you look at the legs there is a lot of detailed engraving. You can wear it either has a brooch or pendant. Made around 1890.
I have put him with his big brother, he was on one of my earlier postings. This one is flatter than his big brother, his brother has his wings up as if he's ready to take off.
I bought this one first, I saw the bigger one on eBay a few days after, it was a good price, so the smaller one got a friend.
