Kimdoo the Terrier Dog Brooch by Lea Stein Paris - real fabric plaid jacket (SOLD)


Lea Stein of Paris is the designer and maker of this lovely Kimdoo the terrier dog brooch in his little winter jacket.   The appealing terrier dog is made in a marbled white finish with a shiny black eye. This terrier dog's jacket is gorgeous as it is a real fabric layer within the brooch. It’s a woven plaid type fabric in teal and a black to blue. It is so effective and to match up his little nose is made from a scrap of the same .  Kimdoo the terrier pin is made of Rhodoid, a type of early plastic, so is light and easy to wear.  This contemporary  brooch is in excellent order. It is layered, like most of Lea Stein's brooches.  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 2 inches at its widest points. 

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.
