Sterling silver brooch with a piece of butterfly wing set under glass.
Tiny and a bit faded as it probably got wet during an over enthusiastic polishing (not by me) but its still sweet and pretty.
It is a wonderful example of people's fascination with collecting and displaying the wonders of the natural world that was very popular during the Art Deco period, c. 1920’s. when the technique was patented.
It looks like based on the three tiny holes at the bottom that it may had something strung from it.
This is a pre owned, pre loved worn brooch and as such is not in "new" condition but in very good used vintage condition.
I have not cleaned this piece in order to protect its delicate nature however it could be polished up using a treated dry duster designed for silver. The patina does not diminish the unique whimsy and beauty of this piece.
Even heavy brooches can be worn on modern garments using a supportive brooch sponge. FIND OUT HOW
