Exceptionally large sterling silver butterfly made in Mexico is 2-1/2"+ from wing tip to wing tip. Inlaid with lustrous paua shell. The availability of this beautiful shell made it perfect for jewelry and decorative object inlay, making each piece special and actually one of a kind ! This piece also has very nice detail. This is signed EGF inside the Heochen Mexico 925 circle. No assay mark. Good condition.
A number of years ago I purchased the inventory of a jewelry shop primarily dealing in Southwestern and Mexican sterling silver. Many of the items were unused old stock still in the original wrappings and boxes. They date from the 1940's through the 1980's. Most of these items are in good to excellent condition maybe only needing a good clean and polish.
Most of our items are vintage unless we tell you otherwise. Therefore expect them to be in "Vintage" condition. This means normal wear and some softening of stone sparkle is to be expected. If either is in excess we will note it in our description. We do not thoroughly clean our items, leaving that to the preferences of the buyer, and if there are any serious problems, flaws or noticeable repairs, we will always try to note it in the description. Realizing that nothing can replace a "hands-on" inspection of an item, if you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, we will always accept returns or otherwise try to make you a satisfied customer. Our return policy can be found at the top of each item page.
If you ask us to hold an item for you and then change your mind about purchasing, please let me know so that we can remove the hold and release for sale. Thank you for shopping with us !
