Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1890

A beautiful antique butterfly wing pendant that really stands out for three reasons: there's a whole, real moth present above the iridescent blue wing; it's set in gold, usually they are silver; and it looks just incredible. To the reverse are the same locket compartments, but these house green and brown iridescent segments of wing. It dates from the late 19th Century, modelled in 14k gold throughout.
