Art Deco Silver Butterfly Wing Pendant

$179.00
SKU: x6712

This Art Deco Silver Butterfly Wing pendant is an eye-catching and highly collectable treasure from the 1920s. This pendant encapsulates the Art Deco era fascination with bold, bright jewellery and unique 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, unsurprisingly, this wing has likely travelled far and wide in its 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.
