This antique gold painted celluloid peacock bird pin is a very large piece that dates from the Art Deco period. Old celluloid bird pins like this are special treasures! Finding a pin like this in exceptional condition is a rare occurrence.
The brooch is painted in dark satin gold and the tips of the wings are air brushed in a satin rose. The head and the birds crown are adorned with old paste rhinestones, each a different rainbow color. The wings are deeply grooved and give a nice 3 D effect to the bird. The long tail feathers curl around a branch with leaves and rhinestone accented flowers.
The brooch is an impressive size at 3 1/4" long x 1 3/4" wide and is not signed. The back has the original stainless steel bar pin and celluloid C hook. Looking at the back, you can see that the celluloid was clear and that only the front was painted.
Excellent condition with exceptionally low wear and a very clean piece with all the original sparkling rhinestones.
A very gorgeous old peacock!
