This vintage pin was done before WWII. Designed by Alice Caviness while she worked in Germany. It features brilliant electric blue and lime green enamels with marcasite accents which bring a wonderful level of sparkle to the pin. Really spectacular design done on sterling silver. (This is about the 5th or 6th time I have acquired this particular design for resale - it is always a crowd pleaser! Now have 3 in stock). It measures approx. 1 1/2" x 1 1/4" and is in superb condition.
The reverse of this brooch has the impressed words Sterling and Germany.
Please note that I have many more of these type of enamel and sterling and marcasite pins listed on my site. I am always looking for them to offer to my customers as many prefer to wear them in clusters. Please note that only one we have available is actually signed Alice Caviness. The others do not bear her name.
Imagine wearing several in a cluster (technically a 'rabble' of butterflies!!).
The next to last photo shows over 20 of these pins many of which several are still available for sale.
The last photo shows a page straight from an Alice Caviness catalog!
