Thank you for visiting our listing. We are offering this amazing Weiss butterfly brooch. It's filled with pink marquee and chatons for the wings. The body is made up of one red marquee and two chatons and two more small ones for the antennas. They are closed back rhinestones and pronged set. The dimensions are 2 1/4" wide from wingtip to wingtip at the top and 1 3/8" tip to tip on the bottom. The length of the wings are 2 inches. The weight is 24 grams. This brooch is in beautiful shape. There is very minimal ware and all of the stones are set. If you enjoy collecting butterfly brooches this is a must have.
Weiss started his business in 1941 with just doing hand sets. After the business got traction, by the late 1950's early 1960's they were outsourcing to Hollycraft. You can see the similarities during that time between Weiss and Hollycraft.
I hope you enjoyed our photos. The colors are so vibrant. Albert Weiss would get stones from Austria because of the higher lead content for brilliance. Please come back and visit us at Affordable Rare Finds. We just ask that you stay safe, healthy, and hold on to that joy. You may need it someday. Thanks again and God Bless.
