1959 Sterling Silver Scissor Tailed Flycatcher Bird Earrings, Made in Birmingham

Bitchin Retro


Scissor Tailed Flycatchers are also known as the Texas Bird-of-Paradise. Adorable and unusual long tailed bird earrings are marked with a Lion - noting they are sterling silver, an anchor - noting they were made in Birmingham, and a K - noting the year 1959 by the style of the letter. Though we looked high and low, we could not identify the actual silversmith or jewelry maker, but we are still on the hunt.

7/8" long x 3/8" wide.

Bitchin Retro Notes: These earrings are in excellent condition, have been thoroughly cleaned, but left with their original patina. Please see condition descriptions below.

Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can, and this may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos. 

Condition Descriptions: 

Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe or magnification. 

Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.

Average = Significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos. 

We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you. 

Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
