Vintage Silver Gilt Enameled Butterfly Pin. This impressive vintage butterfly pin is crafted and hallmarked of silver with a gold gilt wash. The wings are crafted of intricate spun silver filigree and the body enameled in a soft blue and yellow. Estate jewelry is always so much fun to seek out. Unique and wonderful you never know what you will find. It is like visiting a store that carries pieces that span back hundreds of years.
I believe this butterfly to be an Asian Import piece that dates to circa 1940. It measures two and one eighth of an inch by two and one quarter of an inch. It is in good condition with some wear to the enameling.
