This brooch is encrusted in hundreds of clear rhinestones. The sparkle is tremendous. It depicts a bird in flight, or possibly a bird just about to land.
I purchased it at an estate sale. The informational card that came with it stated "1930s Rhinestone Bird Brooch" and also called it "Pot Metal". It measures 3.75 inches from top of wing to bottom of tail feather. I didn't count the rhinestones, but there has to be a couple hundred. The bird has one red eye.
The brooch has no markings, such as a maker, and that was very common in the 1920s-1930s. The closure on the back is the "C" style connector and works perfectly. There are no missing stones.

SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items will safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
