An outstanding example of American craftspersonship from the very end of the 19th c, this beautiful insect brooch boasts a myriad of colors, textures and materials; a stunning two tone fly sits atop a gorgeous faceted crystal in a scrolling frame of 14ct pink gold and sterling. Both substantial yet delicate, with the crystal acting as a dew drop for our wing'ed friend to perch upon, this brooch is truly a remarkable example of the dynamic artistry that figural jewelry of the 1890's enjoyed. Perfect for the entomophile in us all.
