Large Inlay Iridescent Mother of Pearl Abalone in Black Plastic Lady in Hat Figural Pin Brooch
This is a large vintage 1980s-90s lady wearing a hat with wonderful iridescent mother of pearl inlay pin. The lady is wearing a deco era hat and has long hair all with inlaid mother of pearl, abalone and coral. It is impossible to capture the beautiful colors in the photos. Lee Sands did a lot of these in Hawaii and none were ever signed.. Lovely pin is made of laminated cellulose acetate. They came on cards. The pin is 2-1/8" long and 1-5/8" across. The clasp on the back is a replacement made in base metal. It is in perfect working order. The piece is in excellent condition.
I am sure you know that almost any pin can be attached to a strand of beads to enhance the look. She plays a dual role. By herself, this lady under the big hat is a beautiful pin made of hand inlaid mother-of-pearl iridescent shell. But if you'd rather wear her mysterious profile as a necklace, she easily attaches to any beads or chain. Imagine this pin on a strand of mother of pearl beads!
