Rue collected pins, and she had several butterfly ones. This particular pin is some sort of a delicate paper or fabric butterfly that is bound in thin woven gold colored wire. The piece is 2″ wide and about 1.75″ high. It weighs a mere .1 ounce. There is a little pearl, or faux pearl – we don’t know which – attached to the body of the butterfly. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
