This circa 1960’s Butterfly necklace features translucent amber, green, and gold swirled articulated thermoset plastic wings, a gold tone body and antennae, and tiny yellow eyes. A bar pin (priced at $1200!) featuring the same butterfly appears in Leigh Leshner's "Collecting Art Plastic Jewelry" (page 21). Our piece is not bakelite (or if it is, it's lacquered), so it is priced much more affordably! A whimsical, high quality treasure!
Measurements: Double chains measure 20 inches (50.8 cm), and the butterfly measures 3.75 by 2.5 inches (9.5 by 6.4 cm).
