I've never seen a piece like this by Bernard Instone before luckily it came my way so it's a great addition to my collection.
As you can see it is beautifully enamelled in pearly White overlaid with blue on the trailing feathers of the wings, and very lovely detail on the eyes, beak and legs. It’s a large brooch measuring approx 6cm by 6cm, at the back it is marked silver and B.I.
As I have said above I have never seen work like this from Bernard Instone so no idea of age, it maybe a commission piece but I'm really in the dark with this one.
Many thanks for looking
