Jabot Pin, 1925–30

This is a Jabot Pin. It was produced by Tiffany & Co..

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Tiffany and Co. as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.

It is dated 1925–30. Its medium is diamonds, platinum, rock crystal (quartz), chalcedony (onyx).

Although the jabot was usually a ruffle or cravat, the jabot pin was normally worn on a cloche hat or lapel. The fan shape creates exoticism by suggesting a turban ornament. Both the form and materials show Tiffany working in a very French taste.

It is credited Lent by Tiffany and Company, Archives, A1999.28.
