This Art Deco rhinestone and red glass pin dates most likely from the 1930's-40's when money was scarce and craftsmanship was good. During the Great Depression a number of trained jewelers fleeing the instability in Europe came to the U.S. and found work in the costume jewelry manufacturing companies on the east coast, many in Rhode Island, etc. where they set rhinestones in pot metal settings like this one. This particular pin features a rectangular red faceted glass stone at its center flanked above and below with a total of 6 baguette rhinestones in an East/West orientation. There are also 6 baguette rhinestones set on either side terminus in a North/South orientation. The rest of the pin front is set with any small clear rhinestones in a pave style making for a glittery presentation. The piece is in good, used condition, but in need of a very gentle cleaning of the clear stones. I will leave that to the new owner, but if done with care will make it an even more dazzling piece than shown. The pin measures 2 1/2" W x 1 1/8" H and we will ship it to you in a jewelry gift box suitable for storage or gift giving.
