Happy Buddha Demi-Parure: Earrings & Necklace: Book Piece Design
Costume-jewelry experts seem to agree that jewelry such as this is mistakenly attributed to HAR or Selro-Selini. In point of fact, the Buddha's raised right arm most likely indicates this design should be attributed to Florenza.
This same Buddha-and-faux-jade design is featured on page 129 of Jacqueline Rehmann's "Classic American Costume Jewelry."
The necklace measures approx. 16 1/2" long. The Buddha centerpiece features two faux pearls and a purple rhinestone. It is 1 3/4" long and a resinous form of plastic nicely emulates ivory while another form of plastic simulates oblong pieces of jade.
The figures on the earrings measure 1 1/4" long. One of the old (and uncomfortable) screw-backs had gone missing over the decades, so we have rehung them from goldtone clips. As is frequently the case, there is some loss to the black outlining on the jewelry, this being more noticeable on one of the earrings. (Please see last photo.) For these reasons, we are offering this classic demi-parure at a specially reduced, as-is price.
