The 1928 Jewelry Company was founded in 1968 and began selling jewelry pieces created in the likeness of Art Deco, Victorian, and antique jewelry. The 1928 jewelry quickly became a hit and still remains quite popular. While many 1928 necklaces have a metal tag with the signature name, most of their pieces came on a card or had a paper hang tag marked with the company name which of course did not stay with the jewelry. Some of the pieces, like this one, have the 1928 Company unique swirling pattern on the back making these pieces easy to identify.
This open work gold tone bar pin features a textured marcasite-like frame for an ivory colored silhouette of a woman in positive relief. The bust of the woman gives the appearance of being carved and sits on a terra cotta colored oval. The cameo pin has the delicate look its manufacturer is known for yet still presents as a substantially well made piece. Excellent Condition.
