Essex Glass Pin or Brooch, Flying Bird, Crane, Art Deco 1930s Vintage Jewelry
This really is a stunning piece and the best example I have seen of Essex (or Goofus) glass. The flying bird (crane) is captured within a little dome of glass, and this protects his beauty indefinitely. The artist has captured his subject so well. The slender long pink legs juxtapose against the warm plumpness of a body of white down and black feathers. This is a great statement piece, an expression of freedom and independence.
1 1/4″ wide, secured by the older trombone closing.
In very good vintage condition, some age appropriate patina to the brass finish
