Fantastic vintage DONALD DUCK BROOCH WITH BUGLE - BROOCH CLIP. The Brooch is 18K Yellow Gold and Platinum and set with Diamonds, Emeralds, Rubies and Sapphires, circa: 1945 (Retro Period). The Disney character has a Bugle in one hand and is showing a "Thumbs Up" sign with the other.
The body is white textured platinum with Diamonds set into it. His Eyes and Feet are set with Sapphires and around the waist and in the hat, are Rubies. Also designed in the hat are Emeralds and Emeralds are also designed into the cuffs.
Is a terrific design and bold use of color. The vintage jeweled Brooch/Clip measures 1 1/4" high and is marked twice, 18K and 750 (once each on the reverse and once each on the underside of the prongs). Safety Clasp secures the Pin/Clip on the reverse when worn. Is a wonderful whimsical piece, unusual and beautifully made! The piece is in very fine condition. The photographs were taken with and without a camera flash and on various background colors to show the design and color of the stones. The photos are a bit blurry.....is so much prettier and more detailed in person.
This fantastic Donald Duck Pin is not marked Disney. It was most likely made as an Air Force Squadron Insignia, with someone of wealth and importance having it made for his wife. It is American a motif as Apple Pie!
