    beautiful art glass butterfly, iridescent green, blue, purple, framed with metal (bronze?). Signed and dated Orient & Flume BIAL 1976, however I have not been able to find anything like this from orient & flume. My son bought it at an estate sale for, I think he said $7.00. Has anyone seen anything like this? Do you know where I could go to find out more about it?

      Hi there. What a beautiful find. I have been collecting Orient & Flume since 1977. The butterflies and dragonflies were made in the late 70's. I believe from 1976 to 1979. Personally I have not seen any dated after 1979 or before 1976. There may be some that were made earlier, but i have not seen one. They came with their own registration card with the registration number, date and artist name. The artist was Steve Addy and I was told by a dealer back then that he had passed away and there would be no more of these beautiful butterflies. She was trying to order one for me at the time. The price she was asking then was $55.00. I haven't seen any since ....except for estate finds like yours. They are signed and dated on the underside of the wing. Yours appears to be in excellent condition with wonderful colors and wing design and would probably command a Very healthy price online. I have seen them sell for $400 to $600. Just my guess though from what I have seen in the past several years. Broken ones on eBay have sold for close to $200. I have contacted Orient & Flume in the past and they had little information to add to what I already know. I am sure due to the fact that these are so fragile, that many did not survive. To me these are priceless. Good Luck and Congratulations on your find. I hope that I was able to offer a little bit of helpful information.
