Enamel David Andersen butterfly brooch made in the 1930's.

A brief history on David Andersen:

David Andersen founded his company in Oslo (formerly Christiania) in 1876. David Andersen was an accomplished gold and silversmith who achieved great fame early on in his career thanks to his high standard of quality and influential designs in his jewellery. Twelve years after opening, he expanded his workshop and in 1892 opened a second store.
After his death in 1901, his son Arthur took over and instigated the hyphen between the name David and Andersen. He also introduced enamelling into the jewellery which was so success it has now become synonymous with David Andersen jewellery.
