RARE 50s Vintage Tortolani Signed Angel and Devil Gold Plated Shoulder Pin Set Book Pieces
Extremely rare TORTOLANI Angel and Devil pin set! With trademark humor, Tortolani designed this pair of good and bad angel shoulder pins that have become a hot collectible set. These cuties are made of an "antiqued", brushed metal. The devil has horns, red rhinestone eyes, a jutting beard, a pointed tail, and a pitchfork. But the angel was made to sit just a little taller. She has wings, blue rhinestone eyes, and a halo studded with small glittering rhinestones.
Both pins are signed with the copyrighted Tortolani mark. They are both in excellent condition. The devil is 1” tall and 1 ½” wide while the angel is 1 ½” tall and 1 ¼” wide. Please note that unlike most pins that are attached to the front of your outfit, these were made true to the concept of an angel on your shoulder- the pin clasps are on the bottom of the pieces, not on their backs.
The Devil pin is noted in Judith Miller's 2007 "Costume Jewelry" book, and is listed with the angel & devil as a pair in Julia C. Carroll's 2008 "Costume Jewelry 303” book.
This set is shown on page 227 of "Signed Beauties of Costume Jewelry", in the book "Rhinestone Jewelry, Figurals Animals and Whimsicals" both by Marcia "Sparkles" Brown.
Excellent condition, highly collectible conversation piece these will make when worn. Who will You listen to sitting on your shoulder? :)

We try to photograph our items to the best of our ability, but we are not professionals. Gold and silver and jewels reflect everything around, including us :) Vintage jewelry is not new and you should expect some wear and aging.
