✿ Flowers for sale ✿

Image Map  

I stocked the top of the shop with big, colorful flower brooches this afternoon. Just click on the brooches above to link to the listings! All of these date to the late 1930s-early 1940s . They are pot metal plated in rhodium with enamel and rhinestone details. This type of figural floral brooch was very popular at the end of the Art Deco period and into the 1940s. Women's clothing of the 1940s was, all in all, made of sturdier fabric than in previous eras and the jackets, blazers and coats were able to support large, heavy brooches like these. The calla lily brooch is marked for Coro and is a variation on a popular brooch (pictured in a reference guide below).
