800 Silver Gold-wash Italian Enamel Butterfly Pin Fine Vintage Costume Jewelry

Offering for sale one of the prettiest butterfly pins I have ever owned. This one is done in fine enamel, of luscious colors ranging from lime green to royal blue, yellow & orange, green and turquoise. This is done over a base metal of silver, over which is a gold wash, all in beautiful filigree work of fine detail. This piece is Italian in origin, and is marked on the back "800 79 GE" indicating made in Genoa and the 800 indicates a grade of silver slightly less than sterling. This rare and lovely butterfly is 2" across measured at the wing tips, and is 2" tall. It is in very good condition with some possible mild wear on the enamel, see photos, it is hard to tell if it is damage or wear or just the filigree showing through; and the fastener in back is in good condition as well.
