This is a rare and collectible 1940s era Alexandra Korda jewelry "Thief of Baghdad" collection scimitar sword brooch with an articulated charm of the figure of a fortune teller. The fortune teller holds a lemon-yellow spherical crystal ball in his lap. This is a special and interesting piece of late art deco/early midcentury designer fashion jewelry, and would be a really cool piece to give as a gift to any collector or vintage fashionista.
It measures 3 inches long and 2 inches wide (including hang-length of the fortune teller.) The brooch is in excellent vintage condition with age-appropriate wear and patina, some minor scuffing to the blade of the sword. It is signed on the back of the pin.
