Crinoline Lady Brooch - 1940's / 1950's

This vintage brooch is a perfect example of a late 1940's to early 1950's hand-embroided piece.  The fashion for crinoline ladies meant that they were seen all over... adorning tea sets and crockery, decorating stationery, chocolate boxes and biscuit tins. Naturally they were a good design for hand sewing and are to be found on cushions, tablecloths, tray cloths and brooches like this. Maybe the film 'Gone with the Wind'  which came out in 1939 was partly responsible for the craze!

On this brooch the lady has been finished with super attention to detail.  She has a purple picture bonnet, a yellow crinoline gown with dark pink bows and she is carrying a basket full of violet flowers. This oval brooch is set in a chrome finished frame  which has a subtle pattern of leaves and berries.  This nice old brooch is in very good condition.  It measures 2.25 inches by 1.5 inches and it fastens with a roll-over type clasp.


Designer or Brand: No, this brooch is a hand made 'one of a kind' item.
