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.
