Description

Antique Shipton and Co. Morpho butterfly wing brooch, featuring a hand painted landscape of cliffs and cottage, circa 1923.

This brooch has the patent register number 220213 which Shipton and Co. applied for in 1922 for the production of butterfly wing jewellery. This makes it one of the earliest pieces of butterfly wing brooches made by the company, who originally developed the idea.

The handpainted landscape features a white stone cottage sitting on the edge of cliffs, which lead down to the sea. It looks like a landscape from the South West of England, possibly Devon or Dorset, and sits on the reverse side of a thick domed glass front
