The pink and blue feathered Pigeon brooch - lapel pin was made with upcycled pieces of a wood 1960s UK bird puzzle, and it's a great idea for a unique gift under $40. Ah, the 60's in London, with Carnaby Street in all its glory, hip designers like Mary Quant whose clothing could be found in trendy boutiques in the US, "birds" like Twiggy gracing the magazine covers, and much more.

This unique accessory bird pin is from the same era. G.J. Hayter & Co. LTD 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 pigeon measures 2-3/4" (6.985cm) by 1-3/8" (3.4925cm) in size, and has a locking pin back securely affixed to the back. I have not seen a pigeon look this beautiful ever! 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.

This unique brooch - lapel pin 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 lid of the box will contain a picture of the bird on top and a history of the bird pin on the inside of the lid.

The 4th picture shows the pigeon bird pin worn on a garment. The last picture is of the 2-page article on my bird brooches/pins that was published in Little Thing Magazine in May, 2009.

These pins are from my pet-free and smoke-free home and have not been worn.
