Hattie Carnegie Mother of Pearl Sail Boat with tag Rare, dated 1940's .CARNEGIE, HATTIE: 1900s - 1970s

Hattie Carnegie (original last name was Kanengeister) was born in Vienna, Austria in 1886 and emigrated to the U.S.A. with her family at the age of 6. In the early 1900's, she and Rose Roth opened several dress and hat shops in New York City. She designed the hats while Roth sewed the dresses. Her success in retail led to her founding her own company, Hattie Carnegie, Inc., whereby, the company designed and manufactured the jewelry that complimented the dresses.

Carnegie's jewelry designs were her own creations; she did not copy the fine jewelry trends appearing on the market, and her jewelry was always expensive. The movie star Joan Crawford bought and wore much of the Carnegie jewelry. The jewelry consisted of flux pearls, plastic stones and beads, rhinestones and other materials with enamel and gold plated and silver plated metals. Her designs were classified as whimsical and included Oriental pieces, tremblers or noddlers, and figurals which are highly collectible. Other designers working for Hattie Carnegie include Norman Norell, Peggy Tregere, and Claire Mc Cardell. Mark: "HC’ or "HAC" in a diamond or "Carnegie", or "Hattie Carnegie". The Carnegie company was sold to Larry Josephs after her death in 1956 and closed in the 1970s.
