Coro Duette Birds in Flight Pin


Who doesn’t just love these duettes!?! This is a pair of fur clips each of a goldtone metal bird in flight that has many clear rhinestones along the tops of the wings and 2 blue rhinestone eyes in each one as well. If you look closely, you will see that the bottom bird is actually smaller than the top (back) bird. The fur clip on the back is even shorter as well. The fur clips clip into a pin structured especially to hold these fur clips together. The pin part is marked “Coro Duette” and “PAT.No.1798867”. Research of this patent shows it was originally applied for on May 31, 1930 by Gaston Candas of Paris, France, and patented on March 31, 1931. There are pictures of his designs as well. It’s very interesting to see these old documents. You can check it out at the United States Patents and Trademarks website. Pin measures 2 1/2″ x 1 3/4″. The safety catch is in good working condition and both fur clips have good spring to keep them fastened to the pin. I could not get this picture not to show the glare – the goldtone finish is perfect and looks like it was made yesterday. This duette would make a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection.
