A lovely vintage filigree butterfly pin made of 800 silver with a gilt design, and is stamped with the maker’s mark of Marlo Sebastiano F. Ili, from the Campo Ligure area of northern Italy. This area, which is northwest of Genoa, was (for a short time in the late 19th century) a center of the production of “filigrana” (filigree). This pin was produced sometime between 1950-1970 according to the Italian hallmark records. It measures 1 7/8-inches in length and 1 3/8-inches wide. Reverse has a plunger style clasp that functions properly. Weight is 5.4 dwts (8.3 gr.). Condition is near perfect; it has some oxidation which is consistent with age and use.
Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in All of my vintage items are all previously worn and loved and so are sold as is. I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a certified GIA gemologist. I do my best to accurately describe items and am confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc. I use the term “delicate” in many of my listings which I interpret to mean small or dainty. If the ring or item requires extra care when worn, usually I use “fragile” or “wear with care”. Most pieces have been lightly polished or cleaned, if possible, unless the process will damage or alter their natural patina. Some items can be altered, some cannot, so please feel free to ask questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can. Please keep in mind that custom-altered pieces are non-returnable.
