Art Deco Lady Pin Rhinestone Rivoli Crystal Brooch Vintage Jewelry $75


This "Jeweled to the Nines" lady face pin wants to be owned and loved by another lady who loves cool jewels!

Made in the 1980s, this Art Deco lady is an eccentric composition. Her hand painted face is bisque porcelain and there is black acrylic on the back for protection of the porcelain. Her hair is complete headdress of clear rhinestone chains, set off in constrast by black enamel settings. All of the rhinestones are prongs set. The design is topped off with a large faceted pyramid Rainbow Rivoli crystal.

Medium large in size, the lady is 3 1/4" tall x 1 1/2" wide or 83 mm x 38 mm. The entire pin is in pristine clean like new condition with no signs of wear. Her face is perfect with no scratches, scuffs, or dings. All of the rhinestones are original, present, and super sparkling. The Rivoli crystal is perfect as well with the exception of a tiny flea bite on the outside bottom edge that is hard to see with the naked eye, and only if you turn the brooch sideways. The pin is not signed and the back has the original fine working safety clasp.
