Exotic and lovely, this 1940’s brooch features an enameled Persian man holding a parasol, mounted on a rhinestone-accented horse. The Brunialtis mention that this was the only brooch made in the 1943-44 season, and marked a return by legendary designer Adolph Katz to the ethnic themes of the 1942 fall collection. This is a fascinating piece of history!
