Ruby parrot Lea Stein brooch

1 in stock

This collector's piece of vintage designer jewelry is by Lea Stein. The heat mounted v-clasp signed "Lea Stein Paris" dates the brooch between 1969-1981. Specializing in figural shapes, this parrot pin has a fantastic geometric form with a jewel toned garnet red body with subtle striations. The wings and beak are a silvery-grey with a distinctive mosaic, shed snakeskin type of design.

Lea Stein's secret sauce was to layer fabrics such as lace in a "sandwich" of her signature cellulose acetate plastic. The material was inspired by the celluloid and bakelite jewelry of the 1920's and 30's and the designs were strongly influenced by the art deco style of the period as well. Both inspirations are evident in this piece, making it the perfect gift for a collector, wearer of unique jewelry, or bird lover.

In great condition. The only flaw is some kind of white mark on the back of the parrot's body, as pictured in the last photo. Measures approximately 1" long and 5/8" wide at the largest points.
