Part of a Morpho butterfly wing is encased under convex glass and surrounded by a sterling silver frame, c. 1930. These beautiful insect relics were very popular during the Art Deco period, and range from the simple to the complex, this being of the more simplistic variety without embellishment. It is a beautiful iridescent deep blue with russet brown striations and edges defining a part of the wing. The sterling frame has a running egg and double dot pattern below the simple bezel that holds the glass in place.

This lovely vintage silver pin is marked “BERMUDA STERLING MADE IN ENGLAND” which connects the butterfly (Bermuda) to the frame manufacturer in England. It is in very good vintage condition with a few little nicks to the glass, and some very dark patina on the back. I have only lightly cleaned it to bring out the frame’s pattern on the face. It fastens with a rollover c-catch. This example is of a smaller size, and very collectible.

SIZE: 1-1/2”L x 5/8”W

A tarnish resistant pouch is included with this item.
