Vintage 1940s Sequin Butterfly Applique Hand Sewn Unused Old StockVintage 1940s Sequin Butterfly Applique Hand Sewn Unused Old StockVintage 1940s Sequin Butterfly Applique Hand Sewn Unused Old Stock

This is a gorgeous old hand sequined butterfly appliqué that came from the remaining inventory of the workshop of a lady who had a trim and sequining business from the 1930s through to the 1960s. She supplied many of the dressmakers and couturiers located in Canada and the US. I estimate that this piece most likely dates to the 1940s due to its style and the type of sequins used. It is hand applied onto a buckram type mesh backing - it is quite amazing how much work went into this. It is quite a large piece (note scale as posed on dress), measuring 8 3/4” across the top and about 6” in height (sequins only). Beautiful colours on this piece - two tones of gold and purple. Great piece to add to garment for a bit of dazzle!
