Crinoline Lady Pin - 1940s - 1950s Embroidered Brooch

This vintage brooch is a perfect example of a late 1940's to early 1950's hand-embroided piece of costume jewellery. The fashion for crinoline ladies at that time 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 grey and claret picture bonnet with her yellow curls seen cascading from beneath. Her crinoline gown also in claret and grey has an allover trellis type design. She is carrying a basket full of multi coloured flowers and is holding a bunch of blooms up to her face , as if she is smelling their sweet perfume!. This oval brooch is set in a steel effect frame which has a rope patterned border. This nice old brooch is in very good condition. It measures a little over 2.5 inches by  a little1.5 inches and it fastens with a roll-over type clasp.
