A lovely antique butterfly pin (circa 1880-1900).
This attention grabbing butterfly is made of deep red garnets set in a base metal mounting. The eyes are tiny half pearls. The reverse of the brooch is engraved "Albertina Hersche 2951 E. 57 St. Cleveland O."
The butterfly is quite large, measuring 2.1 inches tall by 3 inches wide!!! It would look amazing on a winter blazer or coat.
The overall condition is quite good; however, there is some wear to the gold plating on the back of the piece, and the pin was replaced at some point in the distant past.
