Block Battered & Loved Fantasy Bird Vintage Figural Brooch.  An old Fred Block apparel brooch dating to the late 40's, this pot metal and metallic enamel beauty is battered and loved.  The pot metal is in very good condition as is most of the enamel.  The wear is in the metal around the body area. The stones are original and extant.  This bird measures 2 3/4 inches wide by 3 1/4 inches tall. The pin back is fairly straight and strong, the clasp locks securely. Lots of eye-catching wear left in this old guy.

A bit of history:  A nice Block piece, these made-for-apparel pot metal pins were frequently removed (stolen) from the Block dresses to the point they were mass-produced for replacement pieces as the dress without the brooch was difficult to sell. There is some irony to this as frequently Block "stole" his designs from Coro, Boucher and other like designers.
