Swan Brooch by Lea Stein of Paris - Pink colours (SOLD)

This is a very lovely, majestic Swan Brooch by Lea Stein of Paris. It is not a design that I come across that often so I am really pleased to offer it on sale here.  I am certain that a serious collector will soon snap up this lovely brooch by Lea Stein. This brooch is in pretty pink colourway with a subtle pink and blue marbled effect to the head and neck.  The beak is picked out in a sparkly pink and the main body is in a bubblegum pearl pink which has a marbled effect so adds extra shine and depth to the brooch.  The Swan pin is made of Rhodoid, a type of early plastic, so is light and easy to wear.  This contemporary bird brooch is in excellent order. On the reverse, this brooch has mixed laminates, something which collectors look for in vintage pieces. The brooch has the classic Lea Stein signature on its white metal pin, which fastens with a secure roll over type clasp.  This Swan brooch measures just under 3 inches by 1.75 inches. This swan has character and is one of the more unusual designs from Lea Stein.  Here is more about her work.....

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.
