(6.35 cm HIGH x 6.35 cm WIDE x 1.27 cm DEEP)
Silver brooch in a shape reminiscent of a butterfly. One edge is closed and has a stamped pattern across. The other end is open with a small metal T shaped piece in the center of the opening. The back has a pin closure with safety latch.
This brooch was part of De Patta's line of limited production jewelry. It was number 15 of the line and retailed for $32.50. The piece was added to the line in 1947 and remained in production until 1957 when De Patta ceased the line. It was likely designed in 1946. [JM 11/16/2010]
