Vintage English Sterling Silver 'Morpho' Butterfly Wing Blue CharmVintage English Sterling Silver 'Morpho' Butterfly Wing Blue CharmVintage English Sterling Silver 'Morpho' Butterfly Wing Blue CharmVintage English Sterling Silver 'Morpho' Butterfly Wing Blue CharmVintage English Sterling Silver 'Morpho' Butterfly Wing Blue Charm

I've collected jewellery made with butterfly wing highlights (known as 'Morpho' jewels, taken from the bright blue Morpho butterfly) since I was a girl - drawn to their unique iridescence, no doubt. This pretty example is unusual in that it is in such excellent condition! It has been well protected from the damaging aspects of sunlight. It would estimate its age to be from circa mid 20th Century. I collected it on a trip to England many years ago, and have stored it safely. The beaded edge frame surrounds an oblong Charm of the brightest iridescent blue, under a thick domed glass cover. (Apologies for any glare in some photos - it was hard to photograph!).

Marks: The charm is marked 'Silver' on the back side, with the partially worn numbers '927' in old style font. Condition: The charm is in excellent vintage condition. There is a very tiny amount of discolouration to the upper left hand corner of the butterfly wing side of the charm, (not visible to the naked eye) and tiny scratches to the silver rear side - but it is just the usual silver patina of a vintage charm. Dimensions: The hanging length of this charm is ~just under 1 inch (~2.3cm) including the bail & jump ring, and is just over 1/2 inch (1.3cm) wide. It is almost ~1/2 cm thick, due to the domed glass. It weighs 2.8 grams. Postage: Untracked shipping within Australia is FREE. Tracked shipping is $5 within Australia, and $20 for tracked shipping to listed countries outside Australia. (This is the lowest available mailing service for tracked items - I do not make a profit on postage.)
