So happy when this brooch arrived today. Finally found one online in Australia for a price I could afford!
Seller described it as Art Deco silver & marcasite blue birds brooch and being 900 silver with faceted marcasites! No mention was made of our mystery maker's mark which is known as the "Etruscan Urn" by the followers of Kyratango's collection of these pieces!!
As can be quite clearly seen I hope in the photos, the stones are in fact paste, and i am pretty sure the birds are swallows and they have tiny red eyes too.
The only thing I am not sure about is the time frame for this brooch.........the seller thought 1930s..............I was thinking more early 1900...........
Either way I think it is just adorable and love it very much:) Hope you enjoy seeing this little treasure, thanks, Judy.
