This is a MMA (Metropolitan Museum of Art) CLEO silver butterfly brooch is studded with turquoise and other semi-precious stones (the very top two are replacements and are not semi-precious stones). Often MMA jewelry is made to reproduce the style of pieces in a show, and this butterfly may have been made to resemble Chinese gilt over sterling enameled pieces. This pin lies relatively flat. It has quite the dramatic impact (and is one of my personal favorite butterfly pins)!
Measurements: The pin is approximately 3.25 inch wide by 2.25 inches tall with a horizontal impact.
Condition: The brooch is in very good vintage condition with the one issue mentioned above in the description. The replacement stone at the very top of each wing was originally a small jade stone. Please review all photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description.
Marks: Marked "C 1992 MMA Cleo" and "S925." MMA jewelry is prized for its unique designs as well as its very high quality.
