    here is a brooch that I have had for several years now, and all my research can not identify this beautiful 1930's circa Bird of Paradise brooch in pot metal with large non-foil stones. the colors of the stones lite pink, pink and purple. the pin was replaced by me).
    measurements are 3 3/8" tall by 2 1/2" at the widest point. I do not know the designer however , I have found a few similar birds broochs hat resemble this one, made by FRED GRAY, but not confirmed.

      I have seen 100’s of birds of paradise brooches, most are pave’ set. This piece has such fine detail, do you all see he is sitting on a branch. His crystal body and tail, make me think this is definitely the male of the species as they are the most beautiful. Look how his head is looking back! So much to see in this incredible antique brooch! Thank you for sharing with us Lori!
      I find him most beautiful!
