Details of Fripperies

Long before Damien Hurst, they were making these. Very popular in the 20/30's & with the Edwardians. This one still shows lovely iridescence in shades of blue. Featuring a lady, a sedan chair and two gentlemen. The frame is approximately 7.5'' by 5.5'' (19cm by 14cm) and in good vintage condition. There are a couple of marks on the reverse of the glass, which I haven't tried to remove; the butterfly wing parts are intact. Label (stating guarantee of genuine butterfly wings & patent dated 1924) and stand to the reverse. Made in England. Apologies about the quality of the images here, the flash doesn't do justice to the colours.
