2 Vintage Trembler Butterfly Brooch Pin Wings Glitter Moves
Gold Tone Metal or Brass
Glittery Glittered Silver Sparkles
This is a pair of vintage glittered trembler butterfly brooches or pins with spring loaded wings. The wings of the butterflies are attached to springs so they move when you do. Each shiny gold tone metal or brass butterfly measures approximately 2 ½ inches across and 1 ¾ inches from top to bottom. The bodies have great detail to them. The silver glitter is coated with a clear resin, lacquer or enamel and the edges of the wings are accented in iridescent enamels in red, blue and green. They both have the older “C” clasps on the backs. They are not signed. They are very lightweight and you would barely know you are wearing them. These were probably from the 1960s to 1970s.
These brooches are in great vintage condition as you can see by the enlarged photographs, please look at the photos carefully as they are part of the description. There are no chips or cracks. The amount of silver glitter on one butterfly is much thinner and has spaces that the other doesn't have. The gold base shows through a bit. It doesn't affect the overall appearance, but it gives it a gold and silver shimmer instead of solid silver. The backs have the normal finish wear you would expect on jewelry that has been worn, you can see in the pictures that it is very slight. The clasps are fully functional and secure.
These would make a great addition to anyone's collection of Butterfly jewelry. It would also make a wonderful gift for someone who is into the study of butterflies and moths; Lepidoptery or Lepidopterology.
