Here is a lovely and large vintage brooch. It is signed: "Bob Mackie ©" on the back. This beautiful butterfly is made in goldtone with marbleized enamel on the wings and center of the body. The body is further decorated with prong set and paved rhinestones. The colors used are shades of periwinkle blue, green, lavender and purple.
The pin is a substantial piece and very well made. Mackie has been a popular costume designer for entertainers including Judy Garland, Carol Burnett and Cher. In 1980 he added a line of jewelry that was produced by Marjorie Brandt & Company.
The brooch measures approximately 2-3/4"H x 3-1/2"W and is fitted with a secure roll-over safety clasp
