Description

Beautifully detailed 1950\u2019s Western German pin is a 3-D butterfly design made of gold vermeil filigree. Vermeil is sterling silver with a gold overlay that wears and looks like gold. It's a very cool three dimensional design that I have tried to depict in the pics. Marked on the back for the country of origin (Western Germany) and sterling silver. There is also a hallmarked for Willi Nonnenmann, a German modernist designer. The pin back has a good safety catch.Markings: \u201cSterling Germany\u201d plus maker\u2019s mark. The pin measures 1.5" x 1.125" Willi Nonnenmann founded his company in Germany in 1932. In our research we saw that he filed for his US trademark in 1962-3. Our understanding is that since the piece says \u201cSterling Germany\u201d it\u2019s more likely from the \u201860s and not one of his very early pieces., western germany
