We love coming across such rare beauties as this! A stunning Art Deco period butterfly wing English powder compact signed TLM for Thomas Le Mott of Birmingham, England, who started the fashion for butterfly wing jewellery in the 1920's/1930's. The butterfly wings form part of the young woman's skirt and the lake, the whole picture is mounted under plastic. Condition: In overall excellent for its age. The butterfly wings have no loss of luminosity. The picture within the metal frame, has come away slightly at the top but is secure.
