Hattie Carnegie produced lines of jewelry to accessorize her haute couture seasonal fashions. This stunning large vintage floral fantasy brooch has an incredible kite shaped smoky topaz glass stone as its focal point. The gold tone setting is brushed Russian gold, and is delicately detailed. The feature stone makes a statement, and it is contrasted with the use of tiny clear rhinestones set as "trembling" anthers, and accented by three larger rhinestones across the base of the flower.

The brooch is marked “Hattie Carnegie” in script on an oval plaque. It also has its original paper tag with written inventory information on the back. It is in near mint condition with all of the plating bright. The cognac colored stone shifts a bit in its setting (though quite secure, only mentioned for clarity) and is why I describe the piece as “near” mint. C. 1960’s. A bold and beautiful statement brooch.

ABOUT: “Hattie” (because she was originally a milliner) “Carnegie” (because she renamed herself after someone successful, Andrew Carnegie) offered haute couture and ready-to-wear clothing lines. Costume jewelry was designed to complement her seasonal clothing styles. Many great designers got their start at Hattie Carnegie, including Norman Norell, Pauline Trigere, Jean Louis, and James Galanos.

SIZE: 2-7/8”L x 1-1/16”W
