A Gold Pheasant Brooch
A gold pheasant brooch, with realistically carved body set with faceted ruby eyes, bearing French marks for 18ct gold, circa 1960, measuring approximately 5.9 x 3.1cm, gross weight 19.6 grams.
A charming vintage pheasant brooch. This brooch takes stylistic inspiration from the animal jewellery of the Victorian era, particularly brooches and pins that referenced sporting pursuits such as hunting. This brooch features a realistically carved pheasant with meticulously detailed feathers from its head to its tail. The eye of the bird is set with a glinting ruby, which complements the warmth of the gold bird. This piece would be perfect pinned to the lapel of a tweed jacket worn for a shooting weekend.
