Found this great brootch at antique mall . The size fits in a palm, so very large. All genuine stones. Most are precious stones with many bag. diamonds. But mostly sap., emerald,rubies. The bird in the center can be removed by a screw and bolt in the back. Has bail in center then two more on side for slide. Also has pin. Way too large for pendant I think. It's just shy of three inches in all directions. If anyone can enlight me as to where this could of come from and if anyone ever saw anything like this.
Thank you so much for helping my out. Now, maybe someone will be able to give me some light on where this piece came from and age?????
I've seen a few pieces that were similar to this. You might get a microscope and see if you can find any marks on the back side, a potential hallmark may be hiding there. Hard to tell where and when it was made but a hallmark might help. That's sure neat. It looks like it has little cats-eye chrysoberyl's in there too, great piece !
