    Just going through boxes of my deceased Mother's costume jewelry and found this unusual pin. Does anyone have any information on it?
    I have a couple hundred pieces to go through but this one caught my eye. The wings do clip back to pin.

      It's a very beautiful fur clip!! There appears to be some writing on the gold circular part. That might say who the maker is.

      Lovely old butterfly!
      I see it has some vertigris, which is very bad for metal pieces as it will eventually "eat-up" the metal.
      We have a friend here, Kryatango, who is an expert restorian, she will know what to use to remove it without harming the metal further.
      Belonging to your Mother, this is a treasure!
      Excited to see more of Mother's jewelry!
