This pin is one of the most famous and easily recognizable of Reinad’s items. It is featured in at least three books that I know of: Costume Jewelry Figurals by Kathy Flood (page 226), American Costume Jewelry, volume 1, by the Brunialti’s (pages 74 and 83), and Ettinger’s Popular Jewelry of the 40s and 50s ( page 57). This pin can be found with Reinad’s signature, HC in a lozenge, for Hattie Carnegie, for whom he worked, and unsigned. It can be found as both a fur clip and a pin and, also, with a variety of different colored rhinestones. This particular pin is unsigned and features multicolored marquis and chaton shaped stones, with small clear chaton rhinestones adorning her crown and breastplate. The pin itself is gold plated base metal. Dangling faux emerald earrings and bright red enamel lips and black eyes complete the design. Majestic, she measures three and three-quarter inches long and 2 ½ inches wide. The gold tone is shiny and bright, with some surface scratching visible through a 10x loop. There is loss of enamel to the lips and eyes, as pictured. What is particularly appealing about this Asian Princess is that she is a brooch – not a fur clip – which makes for greater versatility in wear. The locking ‘C’ clasp works well. You’ll be pleased with this iconic beauty! $295.00
