This is what you call 'Puttin' on the Ritz'. That was a song written by Irving Berlin in 1927. The title derives from the slang expression "putting on the Ritz," meaning to dress very fashionably. The expression was inspired by the opulent Ritz Hotel.
This pin / pendant marked RITZ would have fit right in at the fashionable opulent Ritz Hotel. It's from the 1970s Art Deco Revival and certainly has the classic 'Moderne' aesthetics...a stark deco face in black enamel on pewter. Her raised silver-tone pewter lines of facial features, hair and necklace make this a stand-out pin.
This has a secure rollover clasp and a bail on the back so it can be worn as a pin or a pendant. Measures 1 1/4 by 2 inches. Back is marked PEWTER and RITZ. Excellent condition. Puttin' this on can make you feel pretty good.
