Vintage Victorian Butterfly Pin. Victorians were fascinated with butterflies and placed them on ball gowns, pins, hats and hair ornaments. It was not just because of its symmetrical beauty but also because the Victorians believed the butterfly symbolized the final journey of one's immortal soul. Our 2-inch butterfly brooch in antique brass features fine textured scrollwork and makes a flattering addition to wool or silk wraps. Also available in antique silver.
