VERY GOOD. This English Arts and Crafts Enamel butterfly wing pendant is in very good condition throughout. A lovely natural patina has accrued within the Sterling Silver details nicely. There is some subtle wear on the back from a previous conversion, however, this cannot be seen when the pendant is worn. The Enamel has some wear commensurate with age but is still bright and eye-catching. The butterfly wing has been perfectly preserved and shimmers brilliantly as it catches the light. A true collector's piece, this Arts and Crafts pendant will make you stand out from the crowd!
