This 2 1-4" pair of plume-headed birds is in pretty good condition considering it is from the 40s when Coro (1901-1979) made their Duettes line, which could be worn as one brooch, or detached to make 2 fur or dress clips. The piece is goldtone with faceted aqua marquise stones as their tummies, tiny white rhinestone accents & sparkly aqua eyes (stones somewhat yellowed with age). Signed Coro des pat pend in script, also Coro Duettes on detachable back brace. Patent number 151,151 by Adolph Katz for Coro (1901-1998) in 1948 & called "love birds"
