LEA STEIN BROOCH - SCARLETT O'HARA - OR BALLERINA - WITH FAN

This is the Lea Stein Scarlett O'hara - or Ballerina brooch.  This one has a fan.  Could not quite get the face to be the same colour as the hands and feet - which are ivorine.  Find Lea Stein difficult to photograph as the light bounces off the cellulose acetate.  This is a genuine Lea Stein brooch - marked with the correct pin - Lea Stein Paris.  Ref: 3111 C73/26 Price £65.

SPHINX - PEACOCK BROOCH - GOLD TONE, BLUE AND GREEN

Love this peacock brooch is made by the Sphinx company which was founded in the U.K. in the late 1940s and closed around the year 2000. It made jewellery in its own name - sometime with the named cartouche, sometimes without. Often with a number. It also made for other companies - such as Butler & Wilson and Kenneth J. Lane. It has been such a busy British company, I was very sad when it folded. This peacock brooch is on a gold tone metal and has green glass diamante stones on the wings and blue ones on the body. The neck and head is a dark blue enamel. It is in good condition. See more details on my web site.
