Click image for detail

Léa Stein Serigraphy Romantic Girl Brooch Pink Frame - Vintage 1960s/70s

This is a vintage 'serigraphy' brooch, from the 1960s/70s and they are almost always unsigned. This one is unsigned but has the distinctive shape of the roll-over pin. It has a pretty pink marbled frame, much nicer in person as it's iridescent with a dusty purple stripe mixed with the pinks. The picture is a micro-mosaic mother-of-pearl effect with the drawing superimposed. The picture is loosely trapped within the frame. The condition of both the picture and the frame is very good, with just minimal signs of use, very light scratching to the back. 5.7cm.

Silver & White Enamel Leaf Brooch David Andersen - Designer  Willy Winnaess - NORWAY
Click image for detail

Silver & White Enamel Leaf Brooch David Andersen - Designer Willy Winnaess - NORWAY

A stunning David Andersen, Norway, leaf brooch. White pearl enamel, silver gilt. The 'w' indicate designer: Willy Winnaess (active 1950s). All clearly marked on the underside. The pin & clasp predates the roll-over designs and thus this piece is pre-1960s. 

Weight 8.4 g

Size:7cm.

Condition: No issues. It's perfect, gold gilt over 925 sterling silver. It's rare to find them in this untouched state! They tend to be polished down to silver. It has been in my collection for a long time and I've rarely cleaned it. Cleaning would bring it up beautifully but it also reduces the gilt cover. In truth it doesn't look tarnished in the flesh, it's just the camera lights that show everything. I do have high quality, non abrasive, gold cleaning cloths, should you require this cleaned before sending, please do request this, I will happily do so. Once clean, pop in an airtight bag, this prevents oxidization.
