Ric the Terrier - 1950's Terrier Dog Brooch by Lea Stein of Paris (SOLD)

 

Ric the Terrier is one of a range of cute dog brooches and pins designed by Lea Stein of Paris.  Ric is a vintage 1950's style brooch that will appeal to all who adore Terrier dogs.  Here we have a cool large cream coloured terrier dog with black ears, nose and eye plus a collar with a little lozenge detail !  The cream colour is further enhanced by a gold crackle effect - you know the sort of thing that you get on aged furniture.  In this case it is simply the layered gold background showing through the cream laminate layer but it does add an extra element to the brooch. 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 right when pinned on and he would look super on the lapel of a jacket or coat - very jolly indeed!  Lea Stein collectors are often interested in the reverse patterns  on their brooches and this brooch has a multi coloured nose and one matt grey ear and one shiny beige ear on a plain cream body.  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.
