Description

Offered here is a wonderful vintage signed Léa Stine Paris plastic mosaic shell design airedale terrier brooch pin – lovely & playful...

Designer: Léa Stine Paris

Bio Notes: Léa Stein (born 1931) is a French artist, known for her compressed plastic accessories. She is often hailed as "the most notable and innovative designer of plastic jewelry of the 20th century". Stein entered the fashion industry in 1957 working in textiles, and by 1965 had developed an interest in plastic. She worked with her husband, chemist Ferdinand Steinberger, to develop a process of layering very thin sheets of cellulose acetate (or rhodoid) and laminating them to form a "multi-coloured sandwich of plastic.

Signature / Marks: “Léa Stine Paris”

Style: Brooch Pin

Description: This is a fabulous Léa Stine cellulose acetate plastic dog pin named RIC, an Airedale terrier. He is a shell-like mosaic of color – brick reds and iridescent blues (that photograph more green than blue), his collar, ears and nose are black, eye white. Back of ears are gray & white plaid, nose white, and the back metal pin has the signature V-shape riveted on a round disc.

Size – approx: 3-1/2” by 2”

Date – circa: 1990s. It has been suggested that the clasp determines in which era a Léa Stine brooch was made. Possibly ‘vintage’ (1960s-80s) brooches had the clasps heat mounted into the plastic, and ‘modern’ (1990s-on) had the clasps riveted on. But there is some disagreement among collectors on this... Because I purchased this brooch from a collector in the 1990s, I believe it to be 1990s, which makes it newly vintage...

Condition: Excellent wearable vintage condition with no apparent damage or repair. Please note that all vintage pins should be secured with a backing post to prevent slippage. Inspect the photos – request more if needed.
