    Early 20th century plique-a-jour enamel butterfly brooch. An unusual one, the colourful plique panels have a white backing, possibly to enhance the colours to the front, but still rather transluscent.
    Cultured pearl I just stuck on with some white tack until I find something better for a more permanent solution.

    There is a maker's mark of JD within a partial circle surround, the circle has a star to the top. This is extremely annoying as I KNOW I know this maker but for the life of me I cannot think what it is.

    Help is appreciated.

      I'll go through my pictures & see if I have one for my butterfly & post it not sure if I have taken one as I haven't taken any in such a long time I do need to do some work on my site but as everything I do Norton tells me I'm on that site to much it gives me the pips as you must do as they say so they think. Will get off my butt soon

      oh yes, Norton is annoying, I'd love to see your butterfly, Zowie

      I have taken a few more shots of different ones I have but for some reason today of all days I have been trying for ages to put some new things on my site but my pictures will not open up once they have run through. I'll keep try love I just finished buying a 925 silver one no other markings were on it. Also sorry for taking so long in getting back.
