It's pretty amazing to find a 1942 Chinaman pin at all, but we did it...we found one for our collectors! This is in the Brunialti book "American Costume Jewelry", on pages 65, 66 and is rated 4 stars out of 5 in rarity. In my personal newer Brunialti books, this is on page 124 of the A-M, and the one shown in the book is of same general condition as the one we offer here...in the world this is valued in the hundreds & it goes up to, welp, (a great investment piece as well as a rare one!)

WOW!!!! WHAT A RARE FIND! I know these figural pieces are greatly sought after, rared very rare!!! Yet the HAND ENAMELED detail is LIFELIKE, here we have flesh tones from 60 years + ago, red lips, eyes lined in a beautiful attitude, and hair, ears are even part of the face of the chinaman...expect some vintage wear to the enamel, most visible at the tip of the nose and upper lip.. He has a collar of tiny paste rhinestones, all are there, all looks original... His hat is of a goldtone metal, again, shiny with some patina... This is a top collectors find, so very, very rare,
