Midas Antiques

tbj6614

Simply iconic, this is a wonderful and very collectable Lea Stein of Paris brooch or pin of a red cat dating from the 1960's.
In the 1960's she had developed an interest in plastic and working with her husband, chemist Fernand Steinberger, they developed a process of layering very thin sheets of cellulose acetate and laminating them to form a "multi-coloured sandwich of plastic". Each 'sandwich' was baked for a long time, then cooled and cut into shapes. The process could take as long as six months. This technique allowed her to insert different fabrics such as brocades, lace, colors and textures into the plastic.
Signed Lea Stein Paris on the pin, good secure clasp and pin. In great condition please see the pictures. Simply Iconic.
Size 10.0 x 4.2 cm or 3.9 x 1.6 inches.
Weight 8.6 grams or 5.8 penny weight.
