Vintage Sterling Silver Abalone Butterfly Brooch, Mid-Century, Mexico, 4.40 grams, 1.5"
Vintage Sterling Silver 1.5" Carved Abalone Butterfly Brooch - hecho en Mexico, 112, .925 signed on back. This has very nicely selected abalone as you can see in the photographs with the nice play of colors. The weight is 4.40 grams. It has light patina that can be cleaned away but I do not automatically do that as many buyers prefer silver as is. Cleaning it will make it look like new. Good to very good condition. This came from a PA estate. Approximate age is mid-century to 1970's. See photos.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
