Vintage Coro Calopsitta Cockatiel Cockatoo Figural Earrings Jose Rodriguez Parrot Brooch Pin |
Coro's immensely popular Duettes offered the option to clip or to pin. A pair of dress or fur clips could be assembled into a framework that functioned as a brooch. It's line proved so successful that top competitor Trifari, introduced it's own Clip Mates version. The Calopsitta (cockatiel / cockatoo) Duette design was patented (#126490) in Providence, RI by Gene Verrecchio for Coro in 1941. It featured two contented birds, back to back, perched proudly upon a flowering branch. These earrings are all from those sets. I found them in a matchbox in my stepmom's jewelry. I have never ever seen any like them before. They are all in am zingly good condition.
ALSO an enormous Jose Rodriguez enamel and rhinestone parrot. She's approximately 3.5 inches long. Unsigned. No visible damage. There are no scratches or chips. All stones are present. Probably pot metal. May have even been repainted. I cannot tell. There are rivets (?) in the back that may indicate it was once a fur clip.
All four pieces for one price.
