Item details

If you like the idea of having a beautiful butterfly in a frame on your wall but don't like the thought of a real butterfly losing its life, then this is the perfect gift!

A beautiful shadow/box frame filled with stunning blue butterflies, each one carefully hand cut from silk. The background is an old vintage style letter print and sets off the vivid blue of the butterflies perfectly.

Each butterfly has been carefully hand cut from slightly stiffened silk duponi or raw silk, the butterflies have a lovely soft sheen similar to a real butterflies wings.The largest butterfly measures 9cm across at the widest point and the frame measures 32 x 24 x 3cm

Custom orders are most welcome too if you have a favourite butterfly let me know and I'll frame it for you.

Please Note: No real butterflies were harmed in the making of this frame. These are hand cut from silk duponi!

The frame has a tough clear plastic instead of glass, this makes it lighter and cheaper to ship as well as safer, you can replace with glass yourself on delivery if you wish.

I'm based in the UK so please read my shipping policies carefully before ordering, thank you! x
