Vintage David-Andersen Sterling Enamel Butterfly Brooch Pin Large Multi-Color

This exquisite vintage brooch is by David-Andersen of Oslo, Norway. It is made of sterling silver with a gold vermeil wash and is in the form of a butterfly. The colorful wings are accented with translucent, vitreous glass (kiln-fired) enamel in amber, gold, brown, sky blue, olive green, and black. The wings feature a gorgeous, basse-taille, veining pattern that shimmers through the enamel.

The brooch is quite large, measuring 2 3/8" by 1 1/2". It is the largest of Andersen's many butterfly designs. The back has a roll-over safety clasp and is signed "D-A Norway Sterling 925S" along with Andersen's scales mark. The piece is in excellent condition, with its lovely, original patina intact. The finish of the enamel is extraordinarily glossy; any light spots are the result of glare, not damage.
