      Wow, that is a beautiful bird brooch!

      I really like his head- it's very mechanical and strange looking?! His style makes me picture a kookaburra or something? I also love his more pale and subtle colouring which you don't often see in tropical birds!

      Fascinating use of the enamel and striking rhinestones. Absolutely gorgeous !~

      Early Coro is so striking. Love the attitude of the head, and almost sly expression. The enameling is in perfect condition. Really a superb clip.

      You know what I like? It's the unique taste you have for figurines and brooches of animals, that combines on this post for a gorgeous bird wearable little treasure. Thanks for posting Jenni.

      Karen thank you so much for the great compliment, I know how you love parrots & other birds as I do and am so pleased you enjoyed this old one, a special find for me

      Thanks Lauren for the lovely compliments and yes the colors are rather subtle, CoroCraft was fond of using that sea green color around the branches, and I think his bottom feathers have rather a tribal blanket design :) Could it have been inspired by the kookaburra that's quite possible!

      Thank you Phil for the wonderful compliments and I totally agree, the enamel & rhinestone design is really fine CoroCraft style, both they and Boucher made the best exotic birds IMO

      Many thanks Maureen for the fab compliments, love that head tilt too it is a classic inquisitive bird pose - my former pet parakeet would often adopt that pose when he was listening to us talk, trying to learn new words - very sly indeed!

      Ken thank you for the super praise and you are right, it is hard to find the older CoroCraft fur clips in good condition, I just happened on this one - it's usually their enamel that takes the most beating over time, or the stones darken. A bonus was finding a bold legible signature, that too is a rarity

      Lisa thank you for the especially fine compliments I am humbly grateful, it gets hard over time not to post same old, same old types of animals so I always look for something unusual in the design or pose, and I truly appreciate your noticing that & your kind comment

      MrsT thank you for the warm words, it was pure luck to find this one and I was very pleased at its condition too, when something is @ 80 yrs old you have to keep your fingers crossed til you actually see it

      Thank you so much Mary you always give me a boost with your fantastic praise, I am delighted that you loved this parrot my fellow bird loving friend :)
