The enameling, with the delicate lines underneath, delineating the intricate patterns in the wings, is very effective and along with the hand painted markings, conveys velvety texture, depth and contrast, capturing the ethereal, translucent quality of real butterfly wings.The basic color scheme of black, white and reddish orange really "Pops, " making this butterfly extremely eye catching. Very painterly and simply exquisite! The brooch measures just under 2" wide (1-15/16") by about 1-1/8 tall. It is signed on the back "Sterling 925S Norway" with an encircled triangle right after "925S" which is the mark of Hroar Prydz of Oslo. It is in Excellent vintage condition, with no damage of any kind, just light surface scratches, dirt and tarnish due to age. There are the expected minor inconsistencies in execution, mentioned just for the sake of completeness, that only add to its charm and give a sense of "the hand of the artist" note the slight differences in the hand painted black lines and dotted markings.
