Vintage Hattie Carnegie rooster brooch and pendant designed by Kenneth Jay Lane. The necklace chain is from the Monarch Collection and the rooster is a design by Kenneth Lane made between 1955 and 1960 during a period where Lane worked for Carnegie. This rooster pendant is made up of a gold tone metal foundation which is accented by a white plastic piece for the rooster crown. The head is made up of white enamel for the face and a small round green glass inlay for the rooster's eye. The center body is made up of a baroque faux pearl as well as the perch the rooster stands on. The tail feathers are large and made up of white enamel with green glass inlay accents. From the perch dangles a large tear shaped baroque faux pearl and the back has a pendant bail for the necklace chain as well as a pin and locking "C" clasp. The back of the rooster is signed "Hattie Carnegie" within an oval cartouche and the rooster measures 4 1/2" long by 2 1/4" wide. The chain is made up of gold tone metal formed into doubled up rings making the entire 36 1/4" long chain. The chain is fastened by a spring ring clasp and has a hang tag signed "Hattie Carnegie" on one side and "Monarch Collection" on the other. A very rare mark for Hattie pieces as I have not seen anything like this or found any information about it. If anyone knows anything about this unique chain signature please e-mail us as this information would be very helpful. This entire piece is in excellent condition having no missing parts and it is very comfortable when worn.
