    Some nitwit used a modern clasp and GLUED it onto the copper. Marks can be seen where the original clasp was attached. My question is this: Modern or early 1900s? I have been told it is 1960s. Someone has the nerve to say the brooch was poorly made - what!! The cobalt blue enamel is VERY glassy in appearance, just like my Victorian/Edwardian cobalt blue enamel and seed pearl pendant I posted last year. Does the formula/appearance of enamel change over the years?
    Thanks for any info!

      Modern. 50's or 60's.

      Shame on who ever said it was poorly made :(
      I think it's a lovely piece Bonnie!
      I know nothing of enamel, sorry...

      Hi Bonnie!
      Agree with Valentino, perhaps a Limoges piece.
      The repair at least makes the charming bird wearable again! You can't solder on enamel, glue is the only option :-/
