This sterling puffy butterfly brooch is from Mexico. In researching the pin, the most similar were sterling puffy butterflies produced in Mexico by Tiffany & Co. This sterling has a different hallmark, but it is possible that the Tiffany design was the inspiration! Although it is three dimensional, the inside is hallow, making it light weight. The six scallops give it a graceful arch. I love butterfly jewelry of all types and they are a popular motif for Mexican sterling jewelry, but this is a rare design.
Measurements: The pin is 1.75 inches tall and wide with a horizontal clasp. It weighs 17 grams.
Condition: The overall condition is very good, with the patina and scratches that come with age. It has not been cleaned, as you are likely to have your own preferences in that regard. Please use the zoom feature to review all photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description.
Marks: The pin is hallmarked near the clasp and you can clearly read "925." The rest of the hallmark is obscured by the clasp soldering, however, you can see T(?)- 73.
