This is a dainty little 1950s blond mink brooch in the shape of a butterfly with mink wings and with faux pearls and opal and pale blue rhinestones on a blue velvet background. It is not in perfect condition as there are a few missing rhinestones but because of the texture of the fur this is not too noticeable when worn. In the days when ladies aspired to owning a mink stole or jacket but couldn't quite justify the cost, a touch of mink or musquash on a collar or brooch made up for it. It is pretty and would look quite striking on the lapel of a jacket or on a simple shift dress. It is in excellent condition apart from the loss of rhinestones and with a secure pin. It is perfect for a vintage event or to add a bit of old school glamour to a smart contemporary outfit.
A pretty dainty little brooch and perfect for contemporary or vintage events, think Ma Larkin in her Sunday best or Dolores Umbridge and you have the look. We love it. Priced to reflect the missing stones.
It is 3" x 2"
