Art Deco Celluloid Matching Stickpins - Vintage Yellow Swirled - Rhinestone Accents - French

Pair of Art Deco celluloid stickpins with rhinestone accents. They each measure 3.5" long by 1/2" wide. Rhinestones sparkle as new! The yellow celluloid is swirled with white.

These stickpins are from my personal collection and were purchased in Paris in 1998. I am going to guess they are from the early 1930s, but being French they could date to the 20s. I was drawn to them in a tiny shop window on the Left Bank. The owner only spoke French to us. My husband tried to converse with him in very broken French and owner, impressed with his effort, immediately switched to flawless English and treated us like family. It's one of my favorite stories from that trip!

The stickpins open by unscrewing one of the celluloid pieces. Since colors vary from monitor to monitor, I would call their color a cool yellow with subtle white swirls.

I have enjoyed wearing them on linen blazers and cardigans. I'm sure you will find many ways to work them into your wardrobe!

Thanks for dropping by Refined Retro!
