Vintage 'Mayflower' Art Deco Morpho Wing Pendant

Sometimes when I’m shopping I’m struck by a piece of jewelry that has such whimsy that I just have to have it. Here is just such a piece! 

This wonderful morpho butterfly wing pendant is painted on the reverse of the crystal front with a beautifully detailed image of the Mayflower. The boat is shown in full sail, with flags flying in the wind. The artist has made full use of the wing to create a deep blue ocean upon which the boat floats and a bank of clouds behind it give it an excellent feeling of depth and reality. At the very bottom, the artist has labeled the ship so that we know it’s the ‘Mayflower’. 

This artsy pendant is fully hand crafted in sterling silver and is marked as such on the reverse. It measures 59.8 mm long and 36.1 mm across and weighs 13.8 grams. Care should be taken to keep this pendant dry as moisture can get under the crystal and cause discoloration of the wing. 

I’m fairly certain that this pendant was made in England and this is where I purchased it, most likely it was made around 1910-1920.
