Art Deco Egyptian gazelle pin pearlescent celluloid rhinestone collar, or better known these days as a deer stag. Early plastic pins like these were hand-made by factory workers and are not seen very often. The patent for setting (paste) rhinestones in celluloid was issued in 1902, with the jewelry becoming some of the most coveted early plastic pieces. This is only the third piece we've found, one of which had a piece broken off and still brought a hefty price. This deer measures 2.75 inches by 2 inches, and is curved as normal. Done in pale yellow peralescent celluloid, red paste rhinestone eye, and clear double collar, with a couple darkening stones.
