This Art Deco Butterfly Wing pendant is an eye-catching highly collectable treasure from the 1920s. This pendant encapsulates the Art Deco era fascination with bold, bright jewellery and "exotic" materials.
This pendant contains the neo-tropical Morpho blue butterfly wing which was a species of butterfly that was native to Peru. The 1920s was a time renowned for exploration, so it is not surprising that this wing has likely travelled far and wide in it's long life. This butterfly species was unable to be found in the UK, so you can just imagine the awe-inspiring gasp from those who viewed this pendant for the first time!
