HAR Genie Fortune Teller Vintage Figural Brooch 1955HAR, Hargo
HAR Genie Fortune Teller manufactured in the mid 50's as part of a large set. This is the middle of the three male Genie's at 2-1/4 inches tall x 1-7/8 inches wide. The timing is right for the Genie Collection to have been created in tribute to Aladdin - the Movie in 1954 but mere speculation. The Genie is in excellent vintage condition. Earrings are also available on another listing. If you want both, email me for 10% off.
HAR appears to have been part of Hargo Creations manufacturing in New York in the mid-50's. Pieces marked HAR appeared in stores in 1955 with no fanfare or announcement and equally, with no announcement, disappeared in the mid '60 - maybe last sold new in 1964. HAR created very highly stylized fantasy costume jewelry and was and is highly sought. All that is really verifiable with written records appears to be Joseph Heibronner and Edith Levitt created Hargo sometime in the mid-50's and used both Hargo and Har markings.
