    This pure silver butterfly pin was brought back from Vietnam in the early 1960s and given to my mother. The metal is very soft and malleable on this fragile piece.

      Gosh! Just coming back from a visit to Zurich, Switzerland, and I saw a pin EXACTLY like this one on a flea market there (and two of his brothers, everyone a little different but same size and filligree silverwork like this one)!! I think this is European work, maybe 1930es or 1940es, but I´m everything but sure...
