The carving on this crystal is so lifelike that when turned and viewed from the side, the quail look like they are actually flying. They are remarkable. From a Florida collection, this nearly perfect c. 1920 brooch is a reverse carved and painted crystal encased in a 14kt yellow gold frame. The base of the frame is adorned with a cluster of rushes, such an outstanding detail for quail habitat. It measures 1" tall by 1 1/4" wide. It is marked 14kt on the reverse along with a capital N inside a circle. We believe the maker to be F.H. Noble but are attempting to confirm this. The claps closes smoothly and securely. What a wonderful piece for the bird hunter or watcher to own.
