    This rooster was already posted previously with another gold roosters head brooch...
    (Link to it in first comment)

    I wasn't able then to read the maker's mark.

    The turtle allowed me to identify the same mark, A-a hand-B, for Auguste Besson, parisian jewellery maker, active from 1881 :-)

    Size: 1.5" by 1.5" or 4cm by 4cm.
    13 grams.

      isn't it cool to have one and not know who made it. then find another one which can tell the story for the both of them ..nice work.... Eugène François Vidocq .... '-)

      Kyra, I've been searching and searching to find the location of the mark on the back of the rooster. But no, it evades me. Please could you tell me where it is?

      Your beautiful menagerie is growing every day - the rooster looks as it should - so proud to be amongst your other treasures.
