This graceful mermaid looks comfortable in her faux jade thermoset clam shell. Her hair, fish tail and the edge of the shell are accented with clear rhinestones.
This vintage pin has often been attributed to designer Hattie Carnegie though a reliable source says that no signed version of this pin has ever been seen. So, though this does have 'the look' of Carnegie's work, we present this as an unsigned beautiful mystery vintage mermaid pin that swam onto our shore.
She measures 1 1/2 by 2 1/4 inches. The pin weighs just over 20 grams. There may be slight wear to the gold-tone finish of her fish tail (exaggerated by the way the light reflects). Overall, the stones are bright and intact and this pin is in excellent vintage condition with a secure rollover clasp. Circa 1960s.
