Signed by Graziella Laffi, the often referred-to as "Spratling of Peru" this bird brooch can also be found with blue enamel adorning its eye. Executed in all-silver in our case, with hand-etched and stippled details, I like to think of it as a pelican or even a seagull, maybe because she has used the same motif in necklace and bracelet form as well but combined with fish-shaped stations. Measuring 1 5/8" long by 1 1/4" tall the brooch weighs 8.7 grams and is signed with maker's name as shown as well as "925 PERU". It dates in the 1950s and is in excellent vintage condition with great patina, no damage and no repairs noted. PS: For direct check-out via Paypal, please visit my HOMEPAGE. Thank you!
