St John Signed Snowman Pin Brooch Rhinestone Enamel
St John Snowman Pin Brooch is a sparkly white rhinestone pave snowman holding a candy cane and dressed in a holiday cap dangling a gold tone St John signature charm. His cap, muffler/ scarf, and the candy cane are all brightened with festive red, white and green enamel. He has emerald green rhinestone eyes, a black enamel "charcoal" nose and a smiling gold tone mouth that gives him a happy and satisfied look -- as if he has just had a bit of holiday cheer, himself!
He measures approximately 2 x 1-1/4" and has a safety closure.
It is in Very Good/Excellent Condition on the front, but there is some flaking of the gold tone along the flat edges of the reverse. It appears that the piece was originally plated in silver for the rhinestone pave, and over that was a second plating of gold tone for accents on the cap and cuff. The slender edges of the gold tone simply reveal the silver plating underneath. There appears to be no opportunity for the flaking to affect the front of the piece because the front is silver tone for the pave. So, this is simply something we wanted to disclose and it will not affect the look of this wonderful snowman.
St John made some of the most beautifully designed Christmas jewelry of the 1980s IMHO. This adorable snowman is one of those pi(eces. It is very sculptural and detailed and required a lot of work to make with all those clear rhinestones hand set.
Here is an opportunity to have a wonderful example of the somewhat rare Christmas artistry of the upscale St John line.
