Edwardian Blue Morpho Butterfly Pendant

Within a two sided glass-covered surround of gilt metal and upon a bed of mother-of-pearl rests a preserved Blue Morpho butterfly with dorsal wings spread in all its iridescent blues and subtle greens. Reverse the pendant and the soft brown, bronze and orange colors of the ventral or underside displays the distinctive pattern of ocelli or “eyespots” Sprigs of dried flowers of gardens past join the Blue Morpho in a never ending adventure of sunlight bright.
