This is a rare Har Laughing Chinaman Pin. Signed (c) HAR, made by Hargo Creations of NY about 1961.
It is a true collectors piece, admired for its quality craftsmanship and contagious laughing face. It has a warm antique gold tone with multi-colored aurora borealis rhinestones and jade-like stones on his coat. The head is made of molded plastic with a carved ivory look.
This pin is 2-1/2" tall x 1-1/2" wide, with a safety clasp running lengthwise to securely hold its weight. It is in very good condition. There is one small stone missing on his left sleeve.
