Exquisite 3D vintage butterfly pin with dainty vermeil gold washed silver filigree wings with plique-a-jour enameling. The enamels are deep sky blue, aqua and green. This enameling technique creates an airy, stained glass window effect. The brooch has great depth and dimension.

Figural pin measures 2 inches across. The back bar is stamped 800. This indicates silver content (slightly less than 925 sterling standard) and was used extensively for lovely costume jewelry throughout European countries. Best guesstimate is that the pin was made in Italy - there are no country markings. c. 1950 - 1960s.

Beautiful condition and very elegant! Butterflies are a beautiful symbol of hope. It's a lovely item to give as a gift.
