My last (more recent, lol!) buy...

Unsigned and unmarked, but in Thomas L Mott spirit, this critter is rather big!

Wingspan is 6 cm.

Diagonal is 8 cm.

Some moisture damage to the wings, but colour is still vibrant!

Last pic is how I intend to wear it, on a cheap Chinese freshwater grey pearls very long string.

    I like how understated the brooch is, despite its size. Maybe it's really a moth......
    the are under rated I think!

    Wow, what a fantastic dragonfly brooch, Pascale!!! Looks just like the one in your avatar. Beautiful construction, love those wings. Looks good with the pearls, too. :)

    What a beauty! Everything is so perfect about it. I actually love the moisture damage on the wings, it gives it additional texture and pattern. Fab!

    Phil and Enameled_Beetle, thanks for your beautiful comment and love!

    Martika, Judy, I falled in love with it at first sight! Thank you ladies :-))

    Karen, it is both stylized and full of movement, looking like a giant may fly! Thank you for your love, visit and appreciation! :-)

    Katherine, a joy to see you! Yes dragonflies may become my new totem ;-)) Thank you for your lovely visit my friend!

    Bijou, so true, the brown flecks complement the iridescence very well, and I love the aged appearance. Thank you for loving the beast!!!

    Many thanks for your loves, Sean, Aura, Vetraio, Alan, Caperkid, Paul and Ho2cultcha !

    As tu regarde sur la queue de cochon? Pas de marque? No marking in the pin stopper?
  18. kyratango kyratango, 11 months ago
    Hi David! No marks on the C clasp...
    British usually don't mark on the closure as French does :-)

    Merci de ta visite!

    Oh BOY!! My grandma called dragonflies, "sewing needles" that was a popular name for them in the 1800s!!. Now all 12 of my grandkids call them "sewing needles" when we see them at the park--tradition marches on!!
