Vintage Staret / Schrager butterfly pin is pictured on Page 184 of Brunialti's, "Tribute to America". A January, 1942 ad from "Jewelers' Circular Keystone describes this butterfly pin as "The Glorious Butterfly" -- and glorious it is. It is described as "having the finest cut imported color stones set in a background of scintillating rhinestones". According to Brunialti, "The brooch also exists with the mark Staret which confirms that Schrager & Co. also designed and produced for Staret." This sumptuous and colorful butterfly pin is set with huge prong-set oval amethyst colored rhinestones in silvertone metal paved with icy clear crystal rhinestones and has emerald green rhinestone eyes. It measures approximately 3-3/4 x 3" and has a safety closure. It is unsigned as most were and is in all original condition fresh from an estate where it remained lovingly stored for many years. Although there is a slight tinge of yellow to some of the stones because of aged glue, This spectacular rhinestone butterfly pin is in Excellent Condition. This is a very rare and coveted vintage Staret / Schrager rhinestone butterfly pin that is regarded as "the" vintage butterfly pin by vintage costume jewelry and vintage butterfly pin collectors. A real catch! (#24675-StaretSchragerButterflyPinBroochHugeVintage)
