Ric the Terrier is one of a range of cute dog brooches and pins designed by Lea Stein of Paris. There are two versions of this dog, one has a collar with a. Diamond shape lozenge dangling on it the other design has studs on the collar.   Ric is a vintage 1950's style brooch that will appeal to all who adore Terrier dogs. A gorgeous, bright and cheerful coloured brooch it  is peppered with tiny bright squares in a myriad of colours including gold, red, mauve, khaki, apricot, green, pink, blue and yellow. This large terrier dog brooch has black ears, nose and eye plus a collar with a little lozenge detail.  This terrier pin is by the famous Parisian designer Lea Stein and it has her signature on the 'v' shaped pin fastening to prove it. This  dog is facing to the left when pinned on and he would look super on the lapel of a jacket- very jolly indeed!  Lea Stein collectors are often interested in the reverse patterns  on their brooches and this brooch has a plain black back - I guess there’s enough colour going on at the front!  The  Lea Stein Ric the Terrier Brooch measures about 9 cms by 6 cms. It is made of layered celluloid acetate or rhodoid. This is a contemporary design from Lea Stein who is famed for her jewellery, particularly her animal designs which have featured cats, foxes, dogs, birds and many other things over her history. Now for that history -

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.
