For Katerino, who posted unmounted oval miniatures birds made from feathers.

These are 2cm diameter for the largest, 1.8cm for the egret.

Unmarked gold.

I situe them between 1890/1910

I have more egrets elsewhere...

    Interesting how these things come in and out of style. Yours is Victorian, I have a MCM picture of a bird made of feathers, apparently very popular for a time. Thanks for sharing, I always love looking at your things! :)

    Karen, thank you for your highly appreciated compliment!!! I love lurking at your wonderful glass collection!

    PeeJay is fantastic thanks Pascale....eats, sleeps and plays.....will walk for approx 20-30 minutes and then it is nap time again. Play time is a wild affair ......jumping in the air and running through the house with her favourite toy then playing tug-0f-war with it and me......she is just so funny!!

    Thanks Pascale for your kind wishes for our move........apart from the packing, we are really excited and looking forward to starting a new chapter in our lives and PeeJay and I are both going to enjoy the big fully enclosed back yard which is flat and grass!! And there aren't any huge steep steps either.......so, on with the packing for another day.........

    Signaholic, they are a little bit largest than usual cufflinks... I would love to see your wife's collection! I suppose it is reverse painted intaglios/Essex crystals :-)
