Pot Metal Bird of Paradise Phoenix Brooch
A pot metal Princess hailing from the 1930s or 40s this Bird of Paradise or Phoenix brooch will certainly get you noticed.Sporting a glass amethyst colored stone in its belly and clear stones on its wings, the bird impresses with a gold overlay, texture on its wings, and a red rhinestone twinkling from its eye. Its size is also impressive – 3.25 inches in length from beak to wingtip and a wingspan of 3.25 inches. The pin shows its age via wear to the gold, most notably on its head, and the clasp bar isn’t quite straight although this does not impede its function. A piece of the past that would make an awesome present and would be clever on a coat or perched on a bag or chapeau.
