It is a lovely large impressive bird which is covered in white rhinestones. The rhinestones are not as shiny as they once where, but the brooch still sparkles. I believe there is one small rhinestone missing from the back of the birds head. However this does not take away from the appeal of this piece. (It could also be replaced).It is made of solid Sterling Silver and is Hallmarked "Coro Craft" Sterling. It weighs an impressive 22.61 grams. It has a secure pin and what appears to be a C clasp. I think it was a roll over clasp and the part that rolls over is gone. I have provided a picture for you to look at, the roll over clasp piece could be replaced or repaired by a jeweller.
It measures approx 5.7cm across x 4.8cm top to bottom (approx). It will come in the lovely Coro Craft box pictured. I think the piece would benefit from a professional clean, but you may like the patina.I will leave it up to the new owner to decide. I have not tried to clean this brooch even though I think it needs it. I believe it should be done professionally to ensure the Rhinestones are not damaged. The photos form part of my description so please look at them carefully. THIS IS TRULY A BEAUTIFUL ITEM IN STUNNING CONDITION. A WONDERFUL GIFT FOR ANYONE including YOURSELF. THIS GORGEOUS AND SUBSTANTIAL PIECE IS SURE TO DELIGHT AND IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THIS IS A FANTASTIC ORIGINAL ITEM. IT IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION. This lovely item is from my own personal collection. Make sure you look at my photos they form part of my description and I have described this item to the best of my ability.
