Hattie Carnegie created many Asian themed jewelry items that remain very collectible today. Hattie Carnegie established herself as a talented fashion designer and flourished in the "cocktail jewelry" movement of the mid 30's thru the early 60's when costume jewelry put the finishing touches on an outfit. This piece was produced in the 1960's. It is done in jade colored glass, goldtone metal and small paste rhinestones. The bulbous Buddha is seated on a goldtone shrine that has a band of sparkling rhinestones on the bottom. THe top of the throne traces the silhouette of the Buddha and it too has prong set and bezel set rhinestones. Buddha looks very comfortable on this throne. He is made of polished jade colored glass that has a marbleized effect. The molded glass is etched to reflect the Buddha's body characteristics. Very detailed and this detail is even on the back of the Buddha, hence the back of the pin. The Buddha is very dimensional. The back foundation of the pin is made of a brushed goldtone metal openwork and the signature oval Hattie Carnegie cartouche is affixed to the back. The pin closes with a locking "C" clasp. The piece measures 1 3/4"h x 1 1/4"w x 3/4" d. This figural pin is in wonderful condition without any issues. Buddha sitting on his throne seems very happy and content. Perhaps by wearing this pin, you too, can gain a bit of happiness and contentment. COndition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
