So this is one of the brooches I picked up at the yard sale, this was marked with a fish symbol inside a crown, the hallmark for Fish Enterprises UK & Crown Jewelry US. They made enamel jewelry, this is an example of their work. My understanding is their pieces are 22K gold-plated; the pieces I've seen are nicely done and well constructed. Unfortunately this delicate little butterfly was pretty battered when I dug him out of a plastic bag, one antenna bent all the way back (I gently twisted it back up), and the enamel missing from the front end of the wing where it meets the body. Oddly, this was in the same batch as the Morpho butterfly wing earrings, so it was my fate to carry home a handful of these beautiful creatures that day. Thanks for looking.
