This magnificent original 1980s diamanté cupid design pin brooch is by celebrated British costume jewellery designers Butler & Wilson (see notes) and is in impeccable vintage condition. The length of the brooch at a diagonal from the wing tip to the toe of the left foot is 4.5 inches, with a diameter of 3.5 inches making it a sizeable statement piece. The design is configured with assorted crystal cuts -marquise, pendeloque and rounds - in varying sizes. The prong set crystal diamanté gemstones glitter with a beautiful pink toned aurora borealis finish over a rhodium backed frame. Charmingly, cupid's bow is set into a tiny chain and has movement. The signature is positioned on the reverse of the brooch, just above the left foot. An incredibly collectable piece from a truly iconic brand. Featured in several notable publications including 40th Anniversary - Butler & Wilson .
