Deep Jade Green Carved Lucite Wings Rhinestone Eyes Asian Butterfly Necklace Vintage Gold Crown Inc. This beautiful vintage 1970’s necklace has a huge butterfly pendant with ornate openwork “carved” Lucite in a deep green jade color. It dangles from a multi-link goldtone chain attached to the antennae measuring approx. 23" long with a spring ring clasp. Made by Gold Crown Inc. marked on back. Not often seen piece by this fairly obscure company which specialized in large, whimsical animal jewelry as well as Christmas jewelry. They did a series of Asian Oriental inspired pieces with this fabrication in different motifs incorporated. The color of the wings is a deep jade green with one light spot on tip of wing. Has the look and heft of bakelite but doesn’t test positive with simichrome. The body of the butterfly has a textured gold tone finish and glittering green rhinestone eyes. Butterfly pendant measures approx. 2 1/2" x 3 1/4". The drop from clasp to bottom is approx. 14”. Excellent condition. No flaws I can find. Would make a beautiful addition to your butterfly or vintage plastic jewelry collection.
