Hattie Carnegie Gilded Insect Trembler Brooch, circa 1940s

About

This whimsical insect trembler brooch, attributed to Hattie Carnegie circa 1940s, has wings on tiny springs so that they flutter with every movement. Covered in gold-plating and crystal rhinestone pavé, this little bug is such a fun and unique accessory! A wonderful addition to your vintage jewelry collection. ABOUT HATTIE CARNEGIE: In 1918, Hattie Carnegie Inc. was founded, starting with a full-scale clothing line. In 1939, Hattie Carnegie began producing jewelry to complement her clothing. Like Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli, Carnegie flourished in the “cocktail jewelry” movement, specializing in brooches and matching sets of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Her jewelry designs were meant to give a touch of flair to otherwise conservative outfits. Hattie's designs are noted for their attention to detail and creativity. Carnegie jewels were adored by Hollywood stars and other American celebrities including Tallulah Bankhead, Joan Fontaine, Norma Shearer, and Joan Crawford. Carnegie seemed to have a sixth sense about the taste of American women, flying to Paris on a regular basis and then returning home to adapt the latest looks to U.S. sensibilities.
