The shapely wings arch slightly from the concave center, which appears to accentuate the sheen and electric luminosity of that lustrous white in the play of light. It is a Large Specimen, measuring in at about 2-3/8" wide by just under 1-1/2" (1-7/16) tall. The butterfly is signed on the back on one side, "D-A" followed by the pair of scales that has been the company's logo since 1939 above "Norway" and on the other, "925 S" above "Sterling". It is in Excellent vintage condition with nothing more than expected surface dirt, scratches and tarnish.There are the usual slight manufacturing imperfections, including bubbles. David-Andersen is known for their butterflies as well as for some of the best Scandinavian mid century modern design. This Big Butterfly pin is wearable and quite dramatic, in addition to being collectible, managing to be at the same time both tailored and feminine as well as casual and dressy. With its versatile color scheme, dynamite in black and white, it will go with everything year round, night or day, to work or play. In such nice condition, it would also make a terrific gift, although I doubt you will want to part with it, and will flutter out of here in a gift box, just in case. A wonderful vintage David-Andersen sterling and enamel 2-3/8 butterfly brooch. Please see our other listings for more great vintage jewelry, including Scandinavian silver.
