Hattie Carnegie Vintage 1950's Poured Glass Floral Pins & Clip Earrings Set - Designer Signed Hattie Carnegie - Pre 1955 Pat. Pend.
Recently I have been listing several Hattie Carnegie pieces of vintage costume jewelry from my collection, many are well known book pieces. On page 108 of Georgiana McCall's book Hattie Carnegie Jewelry - Her Life and Legacy shows one pin in white poured glass resembling the smaller of the two pins in this listing. Hattie Carnegie offered the beautiful gold plated base metal floral pins in different colors of poured glass, and this wonderful color of Robins Egg Blue is my favorite. There are prong set clear rhinestones on the two flower pins. The stem of the larger pin has a textured bark texture that matches the back of the clip earrings. The leaves have beautiful green enameling. This same larger of the two pins is illustrated in Fred Rezazadeh's book - Costume Jewelry - A Practical Handbook & Value Guide - page 54.
Poured glass jewelry is often seen in Haute Couture jewelry made for Chanel by Gripoix, the most famous French company that specializes in poured and molded glass, there is little information about Hattie Carnegie poured glass except that both opaque and translucent poured glass was a unique feature of her collectible flower pins . This listing includes two Hattie Carnegie Floral pins that can be worn together or alone and either pin can be worn with the earrings giving you a very versatile set to wear as you desire. Both pins are signed Hattie Carnegie and Pat. Pend. inside oval cartouches, the earrings are both marked with Pat. Pend. cartouches and Carnegie on the back of the earring clips.
The single stem large flower measures 3-1/4" long x just under 1-1/2" across the leaves. The smaller flower spray measures 2-3/4" long x just under 1" across the leaves. The clip earrings are right and left measuring 1-1/4" long x 3/4" across the leaves. The Hattie Carnegie floral pins and earrings are bright gold plated showing no wear and the poured glass petals are encased with gold plated metal. For a set that is approximately 65 years old it is in remarkable condition and the enamel is not chipped or cracked.
