    This 5"L fantasy bird is a 1941 classic from Coro (1901-1979) featured in many jewelry books, and was simply named Big Parrot. Finally located a signed bird as several online are not signed & some remade in bright colors

      Awesome parrot Jenni!!

      That's a very cool parrot, I adore his long flowing tail and his lovely blue plumage. His little comb with the pink stones in it are a nice touch and the leaves add to the brooch too- it's like one of those lovely old vintage vases you see with pretty peacocks painted on them in gorgeous pastel colours.

      Jenni - I love this! What a find - lovely colors! It's so big...I guess it was worn on a trapeze coat (example Pauline Trigere style) Doesn't seem right for fur although the prongs are hefty... always hope I will see an example in an old magazine. Love it my friend :-)

      That's a big parrot! Imagine how beautiful we could be wearing this on our dress!

      Many thanks for the love

      Scott thank you so much for the wonderful compliment, it is indeed awesome and HUGE lol

      Ken I so appreciate your kind praise, this is a quite humungous piece but as you know I adore parrots & was very drawn to this, have been scouting it online for several yrs but could never bring myself to pay big $ for an unsigned one, all of a sudden I found this & was so happy

      Very good comparison Lauren, it does have the look of those flowing birds on porcelain vases, and yes I think this was peacock inspired esp that fanned headpiece! You have the most wonderful eye for seeing all the possibilities, I love your great comments & always look forward to them, many thanks

      Mary I am so happy you are excited for me finding this, you can appreciate how hard it is to find a really old Coro piece in great condition, it was an rl find and very unexpectedly at a decent price - I think because the market is flooded with both unsigned and copies of this parrot (Julia Carroll the jewelry author says not to trust those), the seller felt the competition. But this guy has all the original subtle coloring and Coro mark so what more could I want. Thank you for the lovely words my fellow bird lover!

      Karen, if only these were still in style to wear on a dress, I could still try to get away with it at a party or on the holidays :) As a huge parrot it would certainly be a statement piece! Many thanks for your fabulous comment

      This is beautiful! I would wear it, it's getting close to fall. I would place it on my sweater or coat. Oh this would definitely be worn.....excellent purchase.
      (Sorry made a typo, I was concentrating on how I would wear it and made a few

      Thanks so much raven for the great compliments, it's true it would be perfect on a coat or sweater, I'm going to do just that come fall. No worries on the typos I was a medical typist back when we had to use three part carbon copies, talk about typos lol!

      I zoomed in, as always, and this lovely bird is in remarkable shape for being nearly 80 years old. Very smart to get a signed piece since there are so many repro’s out there. ( even then watch the signature!) Especially for the most loved pieces. How lovely this would look on my white wool coat Ha! As always Jenni, you manage to find the hidden treasure amongst the 1000’s out there.
      This is a very special piece, I love it!

      Thanks Eileen, this was an incredible find for me, the early Coro bird pieces are so beautiful and they compare with Boucher's fantasy birds to me. Oh I checked & double checked on this one, it has exactly the colors in Brunialti's book plus of course a clear signed mark which dates it. The repros are very brightly colored, some even red or green, I mean the original colors were just fine, right? I got very lucky here, thank you as always for the fabulous praise & support, and the kind love too

      Many thanks Bradinn for the love, it's very much appreciated and glad you enjoyed this bird
