This is one of my finds from today's markets. There is a little bit of enamel missing from the wing, but I expect I can repair that. Even the back of the bird has been enameled. Looks like gold. No marks. I will get it tested this week.
This is the first stick pin I've seen with tiny rivets in the back.
Thanks to the sharp eyes of Kyratango, I now know the era when this pin was made and that it contains rose cut diamonds. I had a closer look and, by golly, they are rose cut diamonds!
UPDATE 3/17/2016: Had the stickpin tested. The actual bird is 18K. The pin itself is gold filled.
Thanks for looking! ~Bonnie~
