I think this beautiful circa 1980's MJ Ent butterfly has the glitter of Victorian jet. The black faceted rhinestones in their japanned setting catch the light and will look amazing on holiday finery or a denim jacket. Part of an Aunt's collection - gorgeous!
Measurements: 2.5 by 2.25 inches (6.4 by 5.7 cm)
Marks: MJ Ent, which stands for MJ Enterprises, established in 1977. "Japanned" is a term that refers to the piece's hard black varnish.
