The famous Lea Stein fox brooch - but in unusual colouring. It is a black fox with red markings - but it has a light coloured thin layer in the middle - which results in a light outline to the fox. Very clever! www.gillianhorsup.com - reference 2755 C6/23 Price £65.

Here's a double headed gold tone vintage snake head necklace. It has oval green glass stone in the heads. It is marked 'Foreign' and 'Rolled Gold'. It is in such good condition I though at first it was more modern - but on closer inspection I would think it was 1930-1950's. The marks would also indicate this.

This is the large, fox head brooch. It is in a sparkley white with black trim and is quite striking! It measures approx 2 1/2 inches across. It has the correct Lea Stein Paris pin. To my knowledge Lea Stein has only done 3 fox pins - the full length curley fox, the thin face, and the wide face. Do correct me if I am wrong! At the moment I have all three in my shop at Grays Antiques - which is near Bond Street tube in central London. Full details are to be found on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - and the brooch is £65 - reference 2747 C6/27
