Since the 1960s brooches in the form of animals were a big fashion. Each of the major jewellery houses had corresponding models in its program, which always lovingly exaggerated the peculiarities of the animals depicted in a cute and funny way. Van Cleef & Arpels stood out with their famous designs for a lion and a giraffe, but Cartier and Maubussin also had cats and dogs in their program. This vintage brooch belongs to that tradition and shows up in the form of two cute ducks! The two different sized birds almost seem to dance with each other, reminding us of the duck dance (as the chicken dance is known in german) of our childhood. The bodies of the ducks are each formed by a large saltwater pearl, whose fine luster shimmers in a cool platinum tone. The wings, necks and heads of the animals are completely set with glittering diamonds. Only a red ruby, which serves as the birds' eye, adds a colorful accent and gives the feathered fellows a lively look. The very well preserved ducks were created in the years around 1980 and came fluttering to us from Hamburg. Their design, excellent workmanship, and the brooch's high-quality materials make this piece of jewellery a very special "conversation piece" that is sure to elicit enthusiastic reactions not only from us.
