This vintage Chanel Novelty Company stick pin with a faux pearl flower bud and diamante rhinestone leaves is a rare departure from their normal large scale, highly detailed and enameled floral brooches. They created some of the most fabulous and highly coveted costume jewelry and they only made jewelry signed Chanel in script in 1941. Coco Chanel sued over the rights to the name and the Chanel Novelty Co. changed their name to Reinad. This pin is lovely, the faux pearl is large with no yellowing or loss of nacre and it is topped with a rhinestone chaton and nestled in a calyx of pave clear rhinestones and flanked by a pair of paved leaves ending with a single rhinestone at the base. The pot metal plating looks japanned and the dark finish makes the dazzling chatons pop. Everything is original and in excellent shape for a piece that is 75 years old. The total length of the pin is 3 1/4 inches, the focal point measures 1 7/8 x 1 5/8 inches and it is signed Chanel in script. There is a tiny ring on the back that I believe at one time had a chain that held the bullet to cover the pointy end of the pin. I collected Chanel Novelty pins avidly in my heyday of collecting and this is the only Chanel stick pin I have ever seen. It is a wonderful piece of vintage costume jewelry history, perfect for collection or wear.
