"Once I read a story
about a butterfly in the subway,
and today, I saw one.
It got on at 42nd,
and off at 59th...
I assume it was going to Bloomingdales
to buy a hat that will be a mistake
-as almost all hats are."
(You've Got Mail)
I was a New Yorker for many years, and this little Vintage Butterfly buckle reminds me of this quote, and the unexpected beauty you find in the most unremarkable of places.
This very beautiful and valuable Enameled double Butterfly Buckle is from the Victorian era, and is in lovely condition. It has such beautiful colors of Aqua, White, Rose, Raspberry, Cobalt, Black, Yellow, Red, and Green; all mounted on an Antique Brass frame. The buckle is the clasp for the necklace. Three strands fall gracefully from the butterfly, the focus one being made of teardrop shaped faceted Raspberry Jade beads..each of them is 1 1/4 inch long. The large end has a beautiful filigree antiqued Brass cap, and the small end has a beautiful Blue Apatite accent bead. The second strand is Black Czech cut glass, and the third strand is a beautiful brass detailed chain. The three strands attach on the opposite side on a beautiful filigree medallion. A Vintage tassel accents the side. A Dusty Rose silk band attaches around the neck and lays flat against the neck for comfortable wearing. A large Silk bow sits on the left shoulder.
This piece is made from the best materials, and compliments the Vintage Butterfly buckle beautifully.
Complimentary earrings accompany the piece, hanging on brass ear-wires.
One of a kind...I LOVE this piece.
