Playful vintage bracelet with enamelled butterflies, around 1985

Cheerful and upbeat, this vintage bracelet immediately conjures up a smile on our faces. The item of jewellery is made from lightly gold-plated silver and comes in the form of a classic anchor chain. On it are four small pendants in the shape of cute butterflies. Their wings are covered with white enamel that shimmers like mother-of-pearl. This pretty piece of jewellery dates back to the 1980s. The little butterflies are part of the long tradition of insect jewellery, because butterflies, bees, flies and all kinds of other little animals have been populating the collars and necklines of society ladies since the late 19th century - and they have not left them again to this day. The bracelet is beautifully preserved and found its way to us here in Berlin. It may have originated in Scandinavia, where work with translucid enamel has a long tradition.
