    This 2 3-4"W x 2 1-2"L crab brooch is one of the oldest designs by Hattie Carnegie, with HC diamond mark that dates 1939-1945. Realistically detailed crab has a rose quartz body, faux turquoise beading, white rhinestone eyes & worn red enamel claw tips (one claw partially severed) on antiqued goldtone.

    Hope that all Cancer the crab CW friends including Bonnie & Thomas will enjoy

      This is nice Jenni! :^D I see where you could use a little Kyratization on this! A little red fine point Sharpie Pen works wonders! Get the multi color pack! LOL :^)
    9. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 years ago
      I adore her figurals. I almost got this one with a "blue" body at one time. I love the "rose" much better. Sorry about his claw :(
      Some day I hope to find "Lion in the grass" & " Pink Elephant in the Grass"
      Better start saving my
      Love your crab Jennie...magnificent Carnegie History at her best!!!

      Phil thank you for great compliment, really glad you liked this

      Tigra, super compliment, you're so kind

      Bonnie glad you saw this and enjoyed, hope your upcoming BD is very happy, and pleased to pass on the HC info - you are so much more knowledgeable than I with your fantastic jewelry pieces

      Thomas, another Cancerian friend, also wish you a fab BD next mo & have another crab piece coming up I hope you'll like - your resident astrologer lol (I got the interest from my grandma who was very "new age" for her day)

      MrsT very happy you liked it, the size is quite impressive

      Judy such a super compliment, it's amazing this old classic still rocks

      Bill thank you for the kind words, if only I had Pascale's talent, when it's this old wouldn't know where to begin, I'm just glad all the stones are there

      Eileen, knew you would recognize this Carnegie crab it came in several different colors, in one it was a brown stone with yellow beads, but somehow the turquoise was more appealing. I didn't even notice the broken claw til started taking the pix, even damaged they still got a lot of $. Good luck getting the lion and elephant, have seen photos they're gorgeous - thanx as ever for your wonderful comment/compliments

      Grateful for the luv all

      Great piece jenni, you could add me with Bonnie &Thomas, I am born the 7-11-59-BB-Boomer......
    12. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 years ago
      Dear Jenni,
      With an iconic piece such as this, you can live with a little damage. Somehow makes it ever so charming! Yes, Carnegie is $$$, I'm so glad he has found a good home.
      Just a little story..Used to "crab" with my Dad, all he would let me do was change out the bait hooks, Ugh. My dear Brother would knock on my door and hand over a 5lb. bucket of full of Dungeness and I would get mad."now I will be up half the night boiling these!" What I would give for a fresh dungy today! Ha!
    13. Newfld Newfld, 3 years ago
      Hi Alan, nice to know another Cancerian as well - it is the sign of the collector you know (I have moon in Cancer & love collecting too) - also hello fellow baby boomer, I'm a late 50s BB myself. Have a great upcoming BD, thanks for great comments & liking this piece

      Eileen I love your crabbing story, dungeness crab are like the tastiest, I would love to have some of those myself
