Description

What can I say. These double brooches with chains are fabulous. Sometimes called chatelaines, collar brooches or double brooches. At present I have pink, brown, blue and green. 

From my research I believe they are from the 1950s although they could be earlier. I have seen them worn on vintage fashion images. As Pray Tell, a character in the TV drama Pose, Billy Porter wears a set of these brooches.

There are modern versions but they do not have the quality, weight or style of these.

The pink one is light bulb shaped and is glass and translucent .

Each cabochon is centred within in a rope style setting. There is a large one and a small one for each pair. They are probably glued at the base and then two rope circles support them within the setting.

Each chain is slightly different. They are very good quality. Not gold, possibly plate but probably a very good amalgam. They have been in storage since the 1980s.

The chains are crossed at the middle.

These brooches are in mint condition. Never been worn. Signed “14” using European number styles.

I am still researching the designer/maker/manufacturer.

Pink – Cabochons are 2 x 3 cm and 3 x 4 cm The chain is 58 cm stretched out. The chains are crossed in the middle.

Even heavy brooches can be worn on modern garments using a supportive brooch sponge. FIND OUT HOW

Audras Brooches

Audra’s Brooches is my unique collection of vintage or antique brooches, pins and clips. I do not change any of the original designs. I simply clean, polish and photograph the pieces before researching their history and style. I also test the pins and safety clasps. My brooches date from 1880 to 1980 and are most often one-of-a-kind. I do sometimes stock multiples of items by particular designers or a job lot of unworn items. These are a rare but exciting find. I have also created a fashion fix to allow everyone to wear any pin on any fabric. Every brooch is paired with a pad to hold antique pins securely and ensure weighty mid-century pins are supported and sit up properly wherever and on whatever you put them. You can pop the pad behind lapels, inside hats, waistbands, or any of your favourite brooch locations. Audra’s Brooches. Everything you can pin, clip or fasten to whatever you fancy.
