This handmade wood Mallard Duck bird brooch - pin was made by upcycling pieces from a hand cut wood puzzle from the 1960s era in London and is a great idea for a unique gift under $35.
This bird brooch - pin is from that era. G.J. Hayter & Co. LTD of Bournemouth, UK made Victory Bird Watching Puzzles from 1963 to 1967. All the wood pieces of the jigsaw puzzles were hand cut, and the birds were cut to shape. I think the hand cut nature of the puzzle, as well as the colorful graphics is so unique.
The Mallard Duck brooch measures 2-5/8" (6.668cm) by 1-5/8" (4.08cm) in size, and has a locking pin back securely affixed to the back. Your purchase also includes a separate wood puzzle piece containing the bird name on it, with a pin back. You can position the pins close together or wear just the name on a bag, or whatever you fancy at the moment.
PLEASE NOTE: I have the following birds from the same 1960s puzzles listed in my shop: Blackbird; Blue Tit; Chaffinch; Mallard Duck; Goldfinch; Jackdaw; Blue Jay; Kingfisher; Magpie; Owl; Pied Wagtail; Pigeon; Sparrow; Starling; Swallow; Thrush; Woodpecker; Wren and Yellow Hammer.
This brooch would make a unique gift for birthdays or other occasions, or to purchase for your own pleasure. The bird will be living in a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" brown kraft jewelry box, nestled in a tiny bird nest and accompanied by the name pin. The inside lid of the box will contain a history of the bird brooch. The last picture shows one of the bird brooches worn on a garment.
