090224 . . . Japanese Metal Work & Enamel Butterfly . . . $18.00
This little guy has a tube hinge and C-clasp closure. I believe him to be an older Japanese piece. There is one very similar pictured in Schiffer's "the Great Pretenders" Costume Jewelry book on page 112. There are 2 marks on the back that do indeed look to be Japanese writing. The body is a heavy brass and the wings are a brassy gold- very thick. The piece measures 1 1/2" by 7/8". The enamelwork shows some wear as seen in the picture. A very interesting piece to add to the butterfly collection!
