Delightful Hattie Carnegie Toucan brooch made with molded resin to replicate coral, ivory and turquoise carvings. All these are offset with pave rhinestone work in crystal and a red crystal eye! Goldtone setting. c. 1960's Original foil hang tag. 3.25" x 1.5". Very good condition and very charming. Research shows that the toucan brooch was designed by Kenneth Lane and Hattie Carnegie, two iconic designers.

While it’s believed Carnegie produced jewelry to complement her clothing, particularly her trademark “little Carnegie suits,” her official line of marked jewelry did not hit the market until 1939. Like Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli, Carnegie flourished in the “cocktail jewelry” movement (1935-1960), where pieces like brooches and demi-parures of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings put the finishing touches on outfits.
