Terrier Dog Vintage Brooch Pin in Lea Stein Style.

Anna Yaeger


Charming & cute vintage multi layered plastic Lea Stein style terrier dog brooch pin dating from the 2000's. The design is a recognised Lea Stein but there are no maker marks.
The original brooches were made by 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 dog is in great order & of a good colour. Good secure clasp & pin.
Size 7.3 x 5.7 cm or 2.8 x 2.2 inches.
Weight 10.1 grams or 6.5 penny weight.
