Vintage Parrot Pin Spanish Damascene Bird Brooch 1960s Jewelry
This parrot or cockatiel pin is Spanish Damascene jewelry from the 1960s. This is truly an odd piece of Damascene jewelry, as not many parrot bird pins were ever made in Damascene. In the 1960s, having a pet bird was easily attainable as birds from South American and other countries were being exported all over the world in mass.
The pin is 24 kt gold plated with silver embossing and black enamel inlay. I find it rather amusing that the bird is on a lamp post, like you could just walk down the street and see a parrot or cockatiel on a lamp post!
The pin is a medium large in size and measures 2" tall x 1 1/2" wide. This pin has obviously never been worn as it is in pristine like new condition both front and back. The back is signed Spain and the original fine working safety clasp is in place.
