Philip Hulitar Rhinestone Butterfly Brooch Pin
Mr. Hulitar was noted for his designs of sophisticated cocktail dresses and evening gowns. His work was featured in the United States collection shown at the World's Fair in Brussels in 1958. "The star of a gifted designer has risen recently on the fashion horizon," The New York Times reported after he opened his own firm in 1949. Previously Mr. Hulitar worked 18 years for Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan as a sales executive, designer and head of the women's dress division. Mr. Hulitar was born in Athens, where his father was stationed as a Hungarian diplomat, and was educated in France and Italy. He developed his interest in design while accompanying his mother, a member of Italian nobility, to Paris fashion shows. On those trips he drew his first sketches.
The pin is approx 2 inches wide. I see a touch of darkening on a couple of the stones, most notably on one antenna. The eyes are green. The stones are pave set in a brushed gold tone finish. This is a very classy looking pin.
