This pretty gathered bouquet pin is from Hattie Carnegie. Three stems of artificial pearl and round clear rhinestone flowers are loosely gathered and "tied" at the stems. A few accent rhinestones are scattered here and there amongst the detailed gold-tone metal leaves. Signed Hattie Carnegie in script in an oval cartouche with a copyright symbol, this lovely brooch dates after 1955.
Length from tops of flowers to tip of stems is just under 3". It is 1 ½" wide and ½" in depth. The artificial pearls are between 7-8mm wide. It closes with a pin and safety catch that are in good working condition. There are 2 spots of plate loss of about 1mm, 1 on the under edge of a leaf and another near the signature on the back. These are very small and do not detract from appearance. Otherwise, this brooch shows very little signs of wear and is in very good to excellent vintage condition.
