This is a vintage pair of butterfly wing screw back earrings from the 1920's to 1930's, hand painted with pine trees and birds flying. Lovely set and such a unique item with hand painted silhouettes on real butterfly wings. The earrings have matching scenes of pine trees and flying birds at sunset. They have silver tone backings and protective cabochan, probably lucite from the era. Butterfly wing earrings were all the rage from the 20's to 30's and these are most likely from a blue morpho butterfly in Columbia.
This piece is a must-have for the vintage costume jewelry collector.
