Pretty iridescent abalone shell butterfly pin from Taxco, Mexico. The sterling silver butterfly brooch has abalone on the wings and mother of pearl on the body. This cute little pin would be so adorable worn classically on the shoulder or as an accent on a hat.
Condition: The center mother of pearl on the body has a crack but is not loose and does not appear to be in danger of falling out. Otherwise good vintage condition with a pin mechanism that works perfectly. Personal preferences vary greatly for the amount of patina on vintage jewelry, therefore I tend to sell jewelry "as found" and leave polishing up to the new owner.
Size: Just under 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/8" tall.
Hallmark: Round Mexican mark with a #3 Taxco mark.
