Go big or go home. Take flight with the magnificent 1930s vintage rhinestone butterfly brooch presented. In period pot metal it will take you to new heights with sparkling cup set chaton rhinestones and colorful prong set oval wing rhinestones in red, blue, purple, topaz, and green. Eyes are accented with citrine colored chatons. A nearly four inch wing span saturated with sparkle and color gives you that roomy, resplendent ride of a lifetime. Prepare for takeoff!
The brooch measures approximately 3 7/8 inches x 3 inches with a 1/4 inch profile or height. Oval stones are about 10 millimeters x 8 millimeters; larges chatons, 4 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is a generous 49.5 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage, especially considering the brooch's nearly 90 years of service. All components intact. All rhinestones intact and sparkly. Of course, with cup set pieces of this vintage, there will be some age commensurate dimming of clear stones. Colored stones retain hues. Topaz shaded ovals have darkened a bit but continue to present beautifully. All ovals are open back set and retain original foil backings. No dents or improper bends to metal components. Prong set stones original with no resetting. Some silver tone finish loss to antennae and reverse of brooch. Pin shaft has slight bend not affecting function. Pin mechanism strong and secure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
The brooch is not signed. It's design, stones, pot metal base and construction indicate a 1930s vintage.
