This Asian Princess brooch is designer signed Reinad and was made sometime during the 1940's or the early 1950's. This lady face pin is a spectacular rare piece with a mask made of silver pot metal that is completely embedded with clear rhinestones. The eyes, eyebrows, and mouth are cut-out open areas. The headdress is made of fans of clear baguette crystals with a cluster of multi-colored crystal chatons at the top. The back has the original fine working safety clasp closure, and the Reinad signature is slightly worn and the last two letters are faint. Reinad Novelty Co. of New York City was in business from 1922 til the mid 1950's. They produced only a few of their designs under their own name and were mostly a produced jewelry for the many of the high end designers such as Boucher, Hattie Carnegie and Eisenberg. (Reference: A Tribute to America Costume Jewelry 1935-1950/Carla & Roberto Brunialti page 28. Fred Rezazadeh, in his book Costume Jewelry, states, "If you see a piece of Reinad jewelry you like, try to buy it, for you will not get a second chance.") Some of the costume jewelry reference books place the value on this pin as high as $500.There are a few missing rhinestones, and a tip of the one of the baquette rhinestones is off. This in no way detracts from the overall appeal and allure of a piece like this. Please view my pictures as I have taken many, and ask any questions necessary.
