LEA STEIN BROOCH - THE FROG -SPARKLEY BLACK & IVORINE

The Lea Stein frog brooch in a lightly sparkley black and ivorine.  Great combination of colours.  I particularly like the eyes - black in the front and ivorine at the back.  Just one of the Lea Steins I have in my shop.  Ref: 3182 £65

VINTAGE BLACK ENAMEL, BLUE FLOWERS, COMPACT FOR LOOSE POWDER - UNUSED

I adore vintage accessories - especially make up items and always like to have some in my shop in central London.  This compact is unused and has very pretty blue flowers on a black enamel background.  The metal is gilt.  The mirror is in good condition - but it does not have a puff or pouch.  Full details on my web site.  Ref: 3180 D7/37 Price £65

1960/70s VINTAGE GOLD TONE, COLOURED STONES, MESH CUFF LINKS

In my shop at Grays Antiques I like to have a wide variety of vintage costume items - and try to include some items for men.  This is a pair of 1960/70s cuff links with a large rivoli glass stone and a mesh band - which completely detaches.  A rivoli glass stone is a faceted upwards pointed stone - and this one is in mixed colours - red, blue, mauve.  It is unused shop stock from Spain.  Please see all the picture on my web site (follow the link).  Ref: 3178 D7/2

GREEN, RED & MAUVE CABOCHON GLASS STONES & GOLD TONE VINTAGE CLIP EARRINGS

1980s costume jewellery was often colourful, large and goldtone.  I think these clip earrings are from that period but they are not too large - being about 2 inches top to bottom.  Classic colours to match real gemstones.  Good condition.  Just right if you have an outfit for them to go with.  Ref: 3175 D5/7

VINTAGE SEWING CONTAINERS

Due to the fact that I will be moving to Alfies Antiques at the end of May 2018, I am taking these sewing containers home for safe keeping!  If anyone would like to see them please contact me and I can bring them back to the shop.  They are also available to buy.  Some are celluloid and the needle containers are
metal.

MONTY DON, VINTAGE, SMALL, MULTICOLOURED GLASS STONES BROOCH

In my shop in Grays Antiques - in central London - I like to sell a wide variety of vintage costume jewellery.  Was delighted to find this 1980s brooch by Monty Don - the famous TV gardening presenter.  In the 1980s he was famous as a costume jewellery producer but unfortunately the firm crashed early in the 1990s.  I find it hard to find his pieces - which is strange because his output was quite large.  Maybe people do not part up with his pieces.   Full description on my web site.  Price £68 ref: 3173.

LEA STEIN BROOCH, JOAN CRAWFORD, IVORINE GOLD AND BLACK

Back to the Lea Stein today - but they are just so popular in my shop at Vintage Modes, Grays Antiques.  I always buy colours that I like - and I think my customers must share my taste.  For example - just love this Joan Crawford brooch - with its ivorine, black and gold colouring.  So smart.  Glad to get it. Has the usual correct Lea Stein Paris pin that the genuine Lea Stein have.
