This beautiful butterfly was made in Germany around 75 years ago. It was designed by Alice Caviness (please note that of these butterfly pins currently listed, only one of them is actually signed Alice Caviness! - see the last photo which is a page straight from an Alice Caviness catalog - this pin is on the lower left).
It is in excellent condition with vibrant lime greens and shades of blue up to cobalt blue. The many marcasites shimmer like diamonds. Wears beautifully. As a cluster too. Note that the next to last photo shows the many German Enamel pins we have in inventory, many of which are available for sale and and are listed individually.
For this or similar vintage pins and their history, make sure to see the book, Antique Enameled Jewelry, by Dale Nicholls (a Schiffer publication with great illustrations on values).
