Object Description

Gold, diamond, and gemstone model of a bird of paradise
Continental, c. 1980
Model: Height 28cm, width 15cm, depth 13cm
Box: Height 40cm, width 34cm, depth 30cm

Depicting a bird of paradise perched on a tree branch, this piece is a wonderful objet d’art, incorporating the finest of materials brought together with exceptional skill and craftsmanship. The bird, which is crafted from realistically textured gold studded with a wide variety of precious gemstones (including diamonds, rubies, and emeralds), sits on a realistically chased gold branch set within a naturalistic rocky landscape, the rocks rendered from quartz and the flowers and leaves of the branch from chrysoprase and yet more precious stones. The piece is materially, texturally, and compositionally stunning, a treasure to behold.

The piece comes with a fitted box.
