Vintage 18K Yellow Gold Italian Ruby Bird Brooch
This vintage Italian 18k yellow gold brooch of two birds on a branch shows the mastery of mid 20th century Italian goldsmithing.
Designed and created as a three dimensional miniature work of art in the 1950's to 1960's, the bird on the right looks like he is about to sing a song while his mate on the left looks on waiting to join in on the music.
The highly skilled artist added rubies for the eyes, breast feathers, wings, a tail and tiny feet with the entire scene highlighted with a florentine texture.
Approximately 1 5/16 inches wide x 3/4 inch high.
Signed on the back of the branch 18k Italy.
