Art Nouveau Carved Horn Winged Butterfly Pin

SKU: 44780

An artistic and very unusual pin from the Art Nouveau (ca1900) era! This unique piece piece is made of hand-carved horn, forming the shape of an elaborate butterfly. The pin is particularly large in size and wonderfully detailed, exhibiting carved texture on the front surface and slight variations in color to depict the bug's body, wings, and antennae. All four of the wings are semi translucent, giving the piece a lifelike look. Attached to the back of the piece is a gold tone bar pin and "c" catch clasp, allowing it to be easily fastened to a favorite garment. A marvelous and lightweight Art Nouveau piece, its unusual design has a very striking appearance when worn. It is sure to make a very special and one-of-a-kind addition to any jewelry collection!

Measurements: The pin has a wingspan measuring 2" wide. The insect's body is 1 1/4" tall. 

Condition: The overall condition of the pin is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the carved horn, and the bar pin and clasp is secure and in good working condition.
