I love collecting bug/insect jewellery, you know that...
But animal themed brooches, plique à jour enamel and paste jewellery are too part of my collecting frenzy !
So... here is my last prey ;-)
A pheasant, good size (5cm from beak to tail!), perfect condition!
Unmarked, gilded on back, C clasp and tiny red cabochon eye.
The pastes are set, not glued, and the Plique-a-jour has nuanced colors. I feel it to be Austrian or German, earlier than the 1920/1930 ones more easily encountered.
Thanks all for your support in my (our?) Collecting addiction! ;-D
