This Coro 'Geissmann Screech Owl' 1938 is rhodium-plated base metal with black and red enameling and pave rhinestones, depicting a screech owl in the act of swooping down on its prey.

Robert Geissmann was of German origin, and lived in New York. He was probably a freelancer who occasionally worked for Cor and the jewelry sector. He was an inventive designer, with an extremely realistic style which he combined with a touch of irony giving his chosen subject matter an almost fantasy-like appearance and strongly defined expressivity. The barely hinted three-dimensionality of the subject is emphasize by its position and the material and colors used.

Dimensions: 2 5/8" x 2 1/2"

These calopsittas ( cockatoos) on a flowering branch are hand painted. These birds are perched on a green enameled branch that is bursting with leaves and flowers of dark and pale pink, dark and pale blue, dark and pale green. The birds' beaks are enameled black. That is a lot of painstaking hand work to create this duette. At the center of each flower is a faceted, faux diamond.

These birds are approximately 3 1/4" x 2".

Clips were a mainstay of jewelry. They can be worn singly or in pairs on dresses and furs, scarves, hat bands, purses, belts, and plunging necklines.

These Coro cockatoos have been hand painted with enamel. At the center of each flower is a faceted, faux diamond.

As you can see by the patent below, this duette was designed by Gene Verrechio and patented in 1941. Pat # for the duette is Des. 126,490 and for the clip #1798867.

Coro invented the "Duette" in the 1930s. An ingenious invention. The design involves two pin clips that fit together, joined by a mechanism at the back, so they can be worn together as a single brooch. Or, you can take them apart, and wear them separately.
