Rarely found in coral/orange, Hattie Carnegie piece. Original vintage Signed HATTIE CARNEGIE anteater brooch. We were privy to a very high end jewelry auction in our local area. An extraordinary opportunity for us to be able to offer this wonderful piece, fresh to the market.
From the "Primitives on Parade Collection." This is regarded, by many, as the most highly sought "HATTIE CARNEGIE" figural pieces ever produced. As stated by our local Auctioneer "A Rare and coveted" piece.
This brightly colored Anteater is decked out in a collar of pave set rhinestones, Coral glass beaded horns with sparking clear rhinestone rondelles. With a face made of a creamy white colored vintage plastic, the lower body in a bold shade of coral. This wonderful fellow has a large "sparkling" faux diamond eye. All stones present and sparking. His pin back remains in good working order, as well.
There is a small area of wear to the plating on the "back" tail area, as seen in the photos, nothing problematic, but needed to be mentioned.
A sure conversation starter given his impressive dimensional look and formidable 3" tall height.
Signed on back of the trunk with the signature oval cartouche "HATTIE CARNEGIE."
