Atkins butterfly pins are to England, what Marius Hammer pins are to Norway, and what Georg Jensen jewelry is to Denmark. Tops!
This one is predominantly done in iridescent greens with black and red accents. The greens range from a lime green to a turquoisy shade of green and there is a burst of golden color emanating from the body
The condition is excellent (no chips or missing enamel). All variations are original to the initial firing and not damage. It measures 2 1/4" x 1 1/4". It has an older c-clasp closure with the pin extending slight out from the main part of the subject which is an indication of an earlier production.
Hallmarks on reverse (tarnished). Truly a century old antique!
