Item description

Hello, and welcome to Pleasant-Hill-Cottage. I'm glad you stopped by and hope you'll stay awhile and browse the shelves. For your consideration today is a vintage sterling silver with inlaid abalone shell butterfly demi parure. The set consists of a brooch or pin and the matching pair of screwback earrings. All three pieces are signed "Henche Mexico 925" in a circle." This is an older set and probably dates to the late 40's or 1950's. The pin and earrings are very nicely done with beautiful pieces of abalone shell inlaid in the wings. The butterfly bodies are silver and made to look very much like a real butterfly complete with antennae. The pin measures about 1 5/8" wide and 1 1/2" long from the upper wing tips to the bottom. The earrings are much smaller at approximately 7/8" wide by 1" long. All pieces are in good condition. There are no missing pieces of shell and the pin bar and clasp work as they should. The earring screwbacks are in fine working order. The silver could use more cleaning to remove the traces of tarnish, but I'll leave that to the new owner. A new jewelry box for safekeeping is included with all jewelry purchases. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll drop in again.
