This is a Hattie Carnegie signed trembler bug brooch. The movable wings are attached with little springs.
It has silver tone findings and clear rhinestones. The silver color doesn't show up as often as the gold color bug brooch. Really a cute design.
SIGNATURES: It is designer signed Hattie Carnegie in a cartouche on the back. This is a mark used in the 1960's.
CONDITION: Several of the rhinestones on the head area are beginning to darken. Please know this is NOT like new!! The silver findings are in fine condition and the clasp works well. Please look at the pictures to see if this darkening is acceptable to you. (In the bright sun or under a camera flash the darkening of the stones does not show up as much.)
SIZE: 1-3/4" by 1-1/4”
HISTORY: Hattie Carnegie jewelry was in production from 1918-1976 but her jewelry was not marked until the late 1930's.
