vintage 1930s porcelain floral and celluloid flower pin lot for assemblage.

I hit the motherload! There was a wonderfully eccentric Chicagoland business owner whose estate came to auction earlier this year. It was my very first auction experience and I was super excited. I considered it, along with my collection of components that I acquired for my design business years ago, to be one of those things that never will happen again. This lady had a hardware business and below it she ran a make shift antique shop. Her personal and business collections were made public and it was amazing to see all the things she had acquired. Because I was able to make acquisitions at a reasonable price, I am able to pass that along. Hoping to help out a new collector, or maybe someone whose been around for awhile happy to round out their stash ^_^

The porcelain flower pin is very pretty in very bright femine colours and measures 1 3/4" in diameter with a safety pin closure...

The celluloid brooch is more unique and interesting in detail and texture measuring 1 1/4" in diameter with c closure...

As I've been restoring the group of brooches, jabots and cloche pins from this estate, I did not have the heart to throw these away. They both have a couple of tiny chips. They are not so severe as to detract from their beauty and uniqueness. I believe they deserve a new life in some altered art or assemblage.

A rescue and rebirth into something wonderful...

Perfect for assemblage or a repurposing project...

No apparent maker's mark...
