This is the Korda Thief of Bagdad Saber Brooch. This brooch was produced by Rice-Weiner Co to promote Alexander Korda's movie
It is a large brooch measuring over 4" x 1.25".  This is a rare find for me.  I am thrilled to have obtained it. (this weekend!!)

The Thief of Bagdad (1940) is a British fantasy film produced by Alexander Korda, and directed by Michael Powell, Ludwig Berger, and Tim Whelan, with contributions by Korda's brothers Vincent and Zoltán, and William Cameron Menzies. The film starred child actor Sabu, Conrad Veidt, John Justin, and June Duprez.
Although the film was produced by Alexander Korda's company London Films in England, due to the outbreak of World War II, filming was completed in California. The film won the Academy Awards for Cinematography, Art Direction (Vincent Korda) and Special Effects. It was also nominated for Original Music Score.[1]

Happy Saturday Evening to you
