A beautiful Lea Stein brooch - although the official name for this piece is "Carmen", it came to be known by Lea Stein fans in the States as Joan Crawford, for obvious reasons!

From 1969 Parisian-born Stein used a material developed by her husband, consisting of laminated layers of coloured rhodoid (multiple, bake-bonded sheets of cellulose acetate). The process allows for the inclusion of layers of other material such as metalic elements and textured fabrics, so that no two pieces are identical. She has now retired, so pieces are becoming more and more sought after.

The colours in this piece are particularly appealing as they give it a real Art Deco feel, as do the geometric shapes.

On the rear is the characteristic V-shaped pin-back signed Lea Stein Paris.

The brooch measures 2 1/8" x 1 7/8".

Please note that I am happy to take payments by installment for this item (see my Policies page).
