‘Ocean Mist’ Butterfly Wing Brooch
A delightful Art Deco butterfly wing sterling silver brooch.
This brooch is named ‘Ocean Mist’ as the convex glass covering the butterfly wing obscures the view rather like mist and the scrolls are like the waves of the ocean.
This brooch features in its centre the wing of the blue morpho butterfly from South America. It dates from around the 1920’s and has a sterling silver setting with an ornate edging.
The silver casing is a charming shape - slim and oval which is rather unusual and measures 3.4cm long. The brooch itself is in good condition with a tiny imperfection on one of the edges but this is so small it is hardly if at all, noticeable. The clasp on the back has been slightly bent out of its original shape but works well and is quite secure.
The butterfly wing itself is in very good condition with only the slightest signs of age on one end and on the single crease. The silver hasn’t been cleaned and is in its original found condition, but would come up lovely should you wish a brighter, shiner appearance for the silver.
A charming antique brooch.
