Signed Nettie Rosenstein Gold Vermeil and Enamel Rose Fur Statement Pin, 1950s

$500

About

A true statement accessory, this fur clip threatens to upstage any garment it's worn on thanks to its immense size, relief and intricacy. Though perhaps better known for her clothing (she designed Mamie Eisenhower's Inauguration gown), Rosenstein's design aesthetic incorporated matching accessories for the clothes she produced, from gloves to handbags to costume jewelry. This dramatic brooch is an example of the bold femininity that earned her both the Neiman Marcus Fashion and Coty Awards in the mid-20th century. Rose branch fur clip with articulated petals trimmed in rhinestones on all edges; hand-enameled ivory petals and green leaves. Curved hinged 2-prong fur pin on reverse side. material: sterling silver/rose vermeil, enamel, rhinestones noteworthy: polish with soft cloth repairs: none condition: good with gentle enamel chipping to petal bases; light tarnish and surface wear on reverse side (see photos) measurements: height: 2 ¼” width: 3” at widest depth: 1 ¼” signature: Nettie Rosenstein
