    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! :)

      Katherine, yep, I remember dreaming in front of framed bird figures like that in my childhood... thank you so much, my friend for loving my things!

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

      Judy, thank you, how is Peejay now? The twins are still rascals, chewing, digging and growing... but really loving creatures, only too energetic ;-)

      Phil, thanks! You're a gem, love back to you.

      Bijou, thanks! By Google search images "victorian real feathers bird" you can see a bunch mounted in lockets or fobs :-)

      David, Marga, MERCI BEAUCOUP! ;-))

      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!!

      Could these have been made for cufflinks! My wife collects a lot of this kind stuff with horse and hunting dogs on them.

    22. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 5 years ago
      I have to agree with the above comments they are beautiful.
    23. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      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 :-)
      Thank you for your interest, love and comment !

      Inky, Jean, thank you and love back to you :-))

      Sean, thank you very much for your visit and love !

      Hello. Hope these days find you all well. My morher passed away a few years ago and you are the only people Ive found on the internet that knows something about this kind of jewelry. I had a bracelet in rose gold and a bouton that comes with it and want some insight about them. Perhaps you can help me.

      Thank you so much.

    28. Jorge_Pena, 1 year ago
      *I have.

      If there is a way to send you pics let me know. I am pretty sure the two pieces I've talked about are from the beginning of the 20th century.
    29. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
      Hi Jorge!
      You can create a post on Collectors Weekly with your pieces pics, of course all of us will see them...
      There is no way to contact members here directly
      I follow you from now, so I'll see your post when you'll create it and be able to comment.
      Thank you for your kind words about my jewellery knowledge, but I'm not the only one of internet to have it ;-)))
    30. kyratango kyratango, 1 year ago
      Jorge, you could join Antiquers too, I'm kyratango also there, and you can send private messages!
    31. Jorge_Pena, 1 year ago
      Gracias Kyratango! I'll try to take some nice pics and post them here. Not easy though. I'll see the other web site afterwards. Thank you for answering.
    32. Jorge_Pena, 1 year ago
      I've succeeded!!! Sorry if I fail in writing in English. I hope you like the collection and let me know if you know something about it.

      Thank you all, specially Kyratango.
