    Any ideas what this is? Butterfly wing jewelry. Inherited from 105 year old mother.

    Thanks.

      Yes, it looks like butterfly wing to me. What does the back look like? Are there any hallmarks or other marks? Thomas L Mott made a lot of these, usually in sterling silver. This one looks like it's in amazing condition, often they're faded and scratched.

      England sterling. Patent 202213 are the only ones I see. Do you know when these were made?

      Very nice!

      The bird can be the Australian Kookaburra, or a more generic Kingfisher :-)
      Agree with all Pebble said !
      You may google English patent with the number...
