A Diamond, Ruby and Emerald Walking Rooster Brooch in Platinum and Gold.
A gold, platinum and gem-set rooster brooch, c.1910 the realistically modelled three dimensional walking rooster handmade in platinum with a diamond and emerald set body and gold head and neck with a finely textured hammered finish resembling feathers, the comb and wattles set with vibrant rubies and the eye highlighted with an emerald, the wonderfully exuberant curved tail feathers are set throughout with old-cut diamonds and the legs, in full stride, are in textured gold complete with spurs, all to a single pin fitting on the reverse. The diamonds are well matched and bright and sparkly whilst the gems are richly coloured and vibrant. This characterful, colourful chap is full of charm and personality, caught as he is, mid-stride and mid cock-a-doodle-doo. He would undoubtedly brighten up any outfit and prove a talking point every time he was given an outing.
