A Shih Tze White Dog Brooch by Lea Stein of Paris -White Dog Brooch - Chinese Lion Dog Pin

Lea Stein of Paris is the designer and maker of this lovely Shih Tzu dog brooch with a cute red bow. This dog's coat is white with inlays of pearl making it shine and shimmer in the light. With ears, eyes and button nose picked out in shiny black this is a very cute piece of jewellery. This Shih Tzu dog pin is made of Rhodoid, a type of early plastic, so is light and easy to wear.  This contemporary  brooch is in excellent order.  The brooch has the classic 'Lea Stein Paris' signature on its white metal pin, which fastens with a secure roll over type clasp.  This dog brooch measures 3 inches by 1.75 inches at its widest points. For fun I pinned a pair of Lea Stein's Shih Tzu's onto my denim jacket and the photo is included here but the price is for the  White Dog only - the Taupe and Cream Dog  is also listed at the same time so if you want both go for it! 

Some information about the designer.......LEA STEIN was born in Paris in 1931 and worked as a dress designer. She began making her now famous Jewellery when her husband, Fernand Steinberger, ( a Plastics Chemist ) discovered a process of laminating cellulose acetate to create a unique range of colours & patterns.

Buttons for her frocks were their first products; followed by brooches, bangles and earrings. The factory was forced to close in the 1980’s but has since re-opened much to the relief of costume jewellery collectors and Lea Stein fans. Lea Stein loves to produce designs based on animals and flowers. Now she is quite an elderly lady but still introduces a couple of new designs each year.

Each brooch has the trademark ‘V’ shaped pin on the back and is signed: ‘LEA STEIN PARIS’. The manufacturing process used means that no two pieces are exactly alike. The fabulous designs, the ease of wearing and their quirky appeal are just some of the reasons why they are so collected around the world today.
