This beguiling Har 1960s pewter brooch with fantasy rhinestones is a desirable trademark piece for this much loved unorthodox and mysterious jewellery designer. Originating from New York in the 1950s with an exotic range of designs, Har's distinctive signature subjects are often fantastical creatures such as dragons and serpents, genies/sultans and Oriental men. The limited number of designs make his work extremely collectible. This ornate piece - referred to as a Blackamoor broach - details the profile of an Eastern Sultan adorned with riches.Tiny rhinestones in magenta and turquoise tones embellish the pewter to emulate jewellery, with a larger opalescent cabochon set into the turban and a diamanté rhinestone earring detail. This enchanting and desirable piece is in perfect condition and measures 2 inches length and 1 1/8 inch wide.
