This large unusual pin was made by Henkel & Grosse, circa 1970s. If you're not familiar with the name, be assured that this old German company was well known to some V.I.P. jewelry makers. Elsa Schiaparelli and Jeanne Lanvin both used H & G before WW2. Beginning in 1955, H&G made four collections a year for Christian Dior. That tells you something about the quality of their work.
This H&G pin measures 3 1/2 inches across by 2 7/8 inches high. It weighs a bold and hefty 77 grams.
The pin is a mix of textured goldtone with smooth silvertone edging and it features four cabochons of striped brown and black Lucite.
The back of the pin is marked GROSSE...one of H&G's hallmarks. Pin is in excellent vintage condition.
