PAVONE BROOCH - DALMATION - GRAYISH/WHITE DOG WITH BLACK SPOTS

This brooch was made by Marie-Christine Pavone - who makes from re-worked galalith plastic.  (Please see my notes on Pavone on my Web Site under 'Manufacturers - my notes).  It is a white/gray colour and has black spots, black trim and red collar.  It has been pre-owned.  I love Pavone's work - which always shows a sense of humour.  She also makes great earrings and bangles.  Ref: 3125 C78/17 Price £68

DIAMANTE & CRIMSON GLASS STONES VINTAGE SPRAY BROOCH

I just love the crimson colour of these baguettes and marquise shaped stones - so beautiful!  Wish I could buy more stock of this quality at a reasonable price.  It is often a case of trying to buy the best stock you can but keep the prices at an affordable level.  So difficult sometimes.  So lucky too that all the stones were present in this brooch and that I needed to do nothing to it.  I have piles of stock at home all waiting for me to attend to.  Full details are on my web site.  Hope it finds a good home where it will be treasured!  Ref: 3123 C75/18 Price £75

ART DECO NECKLACE - GREEN GALALITH AND WHITE METAL PENDANT ON CHAIN

Back to Art Deco today - my favourite!  This necklace is c1930s.  It has a circle of green galalith with a ?chrome and galalith pendant hanging.  There is a chain with galalith and metal beads.  The galalith is a little faded and the metal not bright and shiny - but it is about 80 years old!  Full details on my web site.  Price £148 ref: 3121 C53/5

LEA STEIN BROOCH - THE OWL - SPARKLEY SILVER AND BLACK

This Lea Stein owl brooch is in a very sparkley, patterned
Lea Stein Brooch - The Owl - Sparkley Silver & Black silver with black trim.  So good to wear at Halloween!  It is amazing how Lea Stein manages to use so many different textures in her brooches - making them look so different from each other.  The picture does not do justice to the sparkles on this one.  The cheap import copies of her work simply cannot compare with the creativity shown on items like this!  However it does take time to create a brooch like this - and this has to be reflected in the price.  This is something people appreciate in her work.  I would be very happy to wear this brooch.  It measures approx 3 1/2 x nearly 2 inches.  Ref: 3117 C77/28 Price £65.

This beautiful black beaded bag was made by C & M Caron in France.  The black beads are very small and it has embroidery on the front and on the top.  It has a chain for carrying.  The lining in the inside is a thick satin.  It is in very good condition.  Often the beads are falling off - but not on this one!
