Lovely vintage signed 800 silver enamel butterfly brooch with gold vermeil wash over the silver. In excellent condition with the majority of the 12K gold wash still in tact, which is hard to find as it has usually been removed due to someone improperly cleaning the piece. Marked 800 silver and proper hallmarks for Italy in the cartouche. The colors in the enameling are vibrant in lavender, blues, and greens. Measures a full 1 3/4" across. Ca 1940 with extended pin stem.
Please note... In a sincere effort to keep my prices as low as possible (which is so important these days) I am only gift boxing on request due to the high cost of the boxes and the added weight which increases mailing costs. Your item will be packaged professionally and securely as always, so no worries there. So please let me know if this is a gift & I will box & bow your item at no extra charge in one of my gift boxes with a slide off bow which allows you to easily view the item and then just slip the bow back on before you present it! I have received many compliments on my gift boxes! The ladies just love them!
Please keep in mind my pictures are highly magnified and show imperfections which are not visible to the naked eye. Please read my customer testimonials re: how much better the pieces look in person (mostly due to the fact that I am not a professional photographer and the extremely high level of magnification today's cameras provide.
Thank-you for visiting my shop and have a wonderful day!!
