An Exaltation Of Birds Necklace - Birds
Did you know that the plural noun for larks is exaltation as in a school of fish or an exaltation of larks? Exhalation also means extreme happiness which is how this necklace makes us feel, even though only one of the bird buttons depicts larks.
This exuberant design features seven Victorian bird buttons featuring a bursting aviary of species including larks, swallows, birds tending nests, and one openwork brass pelican.
The aviary is bookended by two antique floral openwork buttons.
In this piece:
- Nine small Victorian brass buttons, seven with birds, two with flowers, all circa 1880-1900
- Hand-wrapped freshwater pearl drop
- Substantial and well-made brass chain
- Length 16” with a 4” extender
