A vintage butterfly brooch featuring stringed wings in a gold tone setting. The frame is solid as is the body of the butterfly. The wings are patterned with gold tone strings or lines that remind us of piano strings. The top wings are flat and the bottom wings bend outward.
The Monet hallmark is clearly stamped on the back of the brooch. We would place this in the 1980's for a manufacturing time period.
Measures 1 3/4 inches wide at the top and overall length is 1 1/2 inches. It is a larger brooch with terrific detail.
