This vintage handcrafted stickpin is captivating with two gilded masks in the midst of an ornate floral array.
There are clear crystals around the masks and flowers with a chain that's attached to the guard piece at the bottom.
The back is signed LAGGIA VENEZIA. We had never heard that name but after a search on the internet, we will now never forget the name LAGGIA.
It's the store of Alfred Laggia, the long-time local Venetian designer who creates incredibly complex hand made intricate mesh jewelry pieces in his studio in Venice (now, sadly dealing with the flooding waters in Venice). Laggia makes tiny delicate pieces as well as dramatic large pieces which were a favorite of Gianni Versace in his runway shows. Some of Laggia's pieces are UNBELIEVABLE! Many involve masks and the masquerade and elaborate head pieces and figurines.
This stickpin measures 1 1/4 inches across by 4 1/2 inches long. Back is signed LAGGIA VENZIA.
Excellent vintage condition with bright goldplating, sparkly crystals and a signature that's now highly coveted by us.
