This butterfly has a beautiful, deep electric blue enamel that is quite striking. The maker is Volmer Bahner of Denmark. The pin is bright sterling silver with no gold wash; the contrast is dramatic. The wings are wide-spread and almost flat. There are darker blue, almost black markings in the enamel. The markings read "VB Sterling Denmark." There is a safety catch. The pin is ca. 1970's. It is a nice size, 1 11/16" X 1 1/8." This pin looks fabulous against white or yellow. A beauty!
