RARE BEAUTIFUL Antique Edwardian Vintage Art Deco Sterling Silver Iridescent Blue Morpho Butterfly Wing Bar Brooch Tie Pin Signed TLM THOMAS L MOTT. Special Occasion. Collector. PRESENT GIFT.
Circa 1910’s – 1920’s
The Brooch will come in a Little Ribbon Tied Box and would make a GORGEOUS GIFT!
A really beautiful antique sterling silver, iridescent vivid blue, morpho butterfly wing bar brooch by renowned makers Thomas L Mott. The setting is a lovely marquise shape with attractive edging. I love morpho butterfly wing jewellery – it’s wonderfully iridescent and shimmers whenever it catches the light.
On the reverse, it has an early safety pin style catch, which is secure. The silver has a nice aged patina, so I haven’t polished it. There is some light surface wear commensurate with age, which I am sure would polish out, but no damage and nothing which detracts from its immense charm.
Most of the butterfly wing jewellery was reverse painted onto the glass, usually with tropical scenes. The patent for this style was granted in 1923 and they were first exhibited at the British Empire Exhibition in 1924. However, this particular brooch is an earlier unpainted piece, and personally, I think these are much more beautiful and desirable.
Measures approximately: 2 1/8″ or 50mm in length.
Suitable for either a lady or a gent (as a tie pin).
Perfect for Any Special Occasion, or for a Collector.
