50's Insect Butterfly 12KT Gold Filled Brooch$68.00
Vintage 50s butterfly insect double brooch or sweater clip. Red rhinestone eyes, light blue rhinestone body and clear rhinestone tail. Both butterflies are stamped 1/20- 12K, this means gold filled. It is a layer of 12K gold weighing 1/20 of the item's weigh. Also stamped CR and the copyright symbol, which I believe is the makers mark.
You lift up the wings to expose the teeth to clip on to your clothes. This was most likely made for tougher fabric like that of a think sweater or coat because the teeth would be too large for thin fabric.
Good vintage condition with all rhinestones intact but it needs a good polish.
This item is sold from a vintage boutique in New Orleans, LA.
