A beautiful quality, large Art Deco butterfly wing cameo brooch, featuring two cherubs.
This piece embraces a decorative technique which combined butterfly wings with sulphide bas-relief figures. More commonly seen in marbles and paper weights than jewellery.
Mounted in a circular sterling silver frame, the Greek figural scene within was made from sulphide clay and placed against a backdrop of irridescent blue butterfly wings. Finally, the piece was finished with a sealed glass top.
Stamped ENGLAND STERLING to reverse.
In good vintage condition; the butterfly wings have retained their stunning irridescence, having the same fresh appearance they would have had in the 1920's. The brooch has clearly been well looked after by its former owners.
Measurements: 35mm in diameter
