Lea Stein - Tropical Parrrot Brooch by Lea Stein of Paris

Who's a pretty boy then?  You can almost imagine this fabulous retro style parrot brooch starting to talk!  Another wonderful and whimsical brooch from Lea Stein of Paris which has all the style colour and quirk that you would expect.  The parrot brooch measures 11.5cms by 3.5cms at its widest and tallest parts.  This parrot pin has a large beady eye in shades of purple and has a red beak with bright red, yellow and green and  feathers. His face is framed with a curved inset of black and white feather effect plastic like a ruff.  Made from layers of cellulose acetate this brooch is certain to cheer up any outfit.  Every piece of jewellery created by Lea Stein is unique due to the hand made process and use of every scrap of material.  This collectable retro style brooch has the wishbone shaped white metal pin with roll over 'c' clasp bearing the 'Lea Stein Paris' mark.    Lea Stein's brooches always sit beautifully and the lightness of the plastics ensure they are suitable for your lighter fabrics like linen but they are equally at home on the lapel of a heavy winter coat.  This vintage style brooch 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.   Here is a little more information about Lea Stein and her fabulous and whimsical jewellery.....

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
