A realistically depicted hand made mid century butterfly pin in precious sterling silver. The lovely guilloche enamels used were hand applied in layers in a painstaking and highly skilled process that involved multiple firings. Dating to the 1950s it is an exceptional brooch. A vermeil finish which is a fine gold plate has been applied to this piece to give it a bloomed burnished warmth. This finish was typical of mid century Scandinavian guilloche enamel jewelry.
From side to side it measures 2 1/2" wide and it is 1 7/16" tall (63mm x36mm). This beautiful pin is in gorgeous condition. There is some slight wear to the vermeil finish on the reverse which is to be expected for an original piece from the mid century era. A very fine piece, this lovely butterfly looks eye catching and pretty on any jacket. Being light it can be worn across all seasons on heavier fabric and lightweight fabric as well.The item "1950s Scandinavian Enamel Butterfly Pin Brooch Sterling Silver Mid Century 925" is in sale since Wednesday, November 23, 2016.
