This is a small early scatter pin. It is Niello with an oriental design. Niello is a black metallic substance, consisting of silver, copper, lead, and sulfur, with which an incised design or ground is filled to produce an ornamental effect on metal. The design is that of a butterfly. The closure is a C clasp with a bend to the pin stem but functions fine. It is in very good condition. Size is 3/4 inches in width by 1 1/2 inches in length.
