'The Peacock' Butterfly Wing Bar Brooch
A beautiful Art Deco butterfly wing sterling silver brooch.
This brooch is named ‘The Peacock’. When photographing it I have never before seen so many beautiful colours appear on a morpho butterfly piece, just look at the photos! Blue, green and even a hint of purple, it’s beautiful!
The bar brooch features the wing of the blue morpho butterfly from South America. It dates from around the 1920’s and has a sterling silver setting with flowered shoulders, detailed bar and an ornate border around the setting.
The brooch itself is in good condition and hasn’t been cleaned, so if you prefer shiny silver, this would shine up beautifully. The clasp on the back is an unusual ‘safety’ pin design and works well. The butterfly wing itself is in very good condition with only the slightest signs of age on the creases. The butterfly mount measures just over 1cm square and the pin measures just under 6cm long.
The morpho butterfly wings were specifically chosen last century because of their beauty and the way they catch the light. And this one is particularly gorgeous.
