In the middle of the back of the stole is a surprise, the head with glass eyes. Bakelite chain runs across the front and hooks into a loop on the other side. Brown silk crepe lining with small inside pocket. Please read condition report.

Tab close has three rhinestones on the top.   Carmen Miranda stacked two of these on her arm during the Cuanto La Gusta dance number in the 1949 movie A Date With Judy.

Emanuel Cohn and Carl Rosenberger started Coro in1901 as a small accessories store on Broadway in New York City. The company officially changed it's name to Coro Inc., a combination of the two names, in 1943. Coro was once one of the largest costume jewelry companies in the world and employed many distinctive designers including Adolph Katz, design director; Gene Verecchio; Oscar Placco; Robert Geissmann and Massa Raimond. The company filed for bankruptcy in the late 1970s. Coro had a large number of jewelry lines.   Check out the VJSE blog for a great article on Coro and Vendome.
