    After saying Coro wasn't a favorite of mine, I saw this adorable Coro bird cage at the little antiques mall. This mall usually doesn't have much in it and what it does have is often disappointing. But this little pin was so detailed and charming and Coro signed to boot, I bought it. The cage door opens and inside a little bird sits on a swing. The swing dangles from a loop so it moves. This design is a 1950 A Katz design for Coro and patented. (Pat. No. 157,970) There were several other designs that year that had a pearl drop. Thanks for stopping by.

      I, too, have never been too fond of Coro, but then again who can pass up their amazing pieces when they come your way? I have one in particular I am EXTREMELY fond of, and would love to have. I believe it's a Katz's design also, in Corocraft. It's the deer eating grass by a waterfall. Magnificent piece that stands on it's own. I have seen one for sale, $$$, and it's in Italy!
      That being said, Maureen you really lucked out finding this little bird house, as these pieces are hard to come by. The deer figural is from the 30's, so it's easy to say nearly 100 year old brooches don't come our way everyday. 1950 makes this lovely piece 70 years old and it's absolutely wonderful!'
      I'm done now......

      Rockit, Thanks, I do try to welcome it. Really I hardly find anything anymore, so when I see something interesting I don't pass it up:) Thanks for your encouraging post. We have to stay open to what comes our way.

      Eileen, I think I know the piece you are talking about. Good luck finding it for a song! Always love your posts. Thanks for adding your knowledge.

      For my CW friends who post loves, thanks so much. It is such a wonderful feeling of connection that you love what I love. Best to you all. Maureen
