Vintage Fabulous Beatles Jewellery Brooch, John Lennon on Guitar, 1964

13 Feb

IMG_6817

Nice estate find just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four’s appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on Feb. 7th 1964.  I hate to admit this because it dates me too, but I remember seeing this show back then. I was a very young teenager.  This plastic brooch is titled “The Fabulous Beatles Jewellery Brooch” and depicts John Lennon on the guitar. This dates to 1964 at the peak of the ‘British Invasion’.  The brooch is attached to a cardboard backing that has copies of all four Beatles signatures. The brooch is 4″ long.

Please note: This has now been SOLD!!

This is a really beautiful necklace. It has two strands of Mother of Pearl beads with a lovely Cameo clasp. The clasp detaches to use as a brooch.  It’s quite heavy and feels lovely to the touch.  I haven’t been able to pin down the date for this necklace but I feel it is mid century going by the style.

This necklace is for sale for $75.00 Canadian.

Please note this necklace is now SOLD!!!

Richelieu 3 Strand Balls of Fire Beaded Necklace, 1950’s

13 Apr

 

Three strand graduated beaded necklace. The beads are called ‘Balls of Fire’, manufactured by Richelieu in the 1950’s. The beads are some kind of synthetic material, not glass, but they have a wonderful glow to them. Hand knotted between each bead.  The clasp has a cabochon style bead affixed to the metal backing. The shortest strand measures 15 1/2″ long and the longest one is 18″ long.  The beads have shades of pink, green and lavender and look iridescent.  The back of the clasp has some tarnishing of the metal.

This necklace is for sale for $20.00 Canadian.

Kenneth Jay Lane Heavy Gold Tone Necklace 1980’s

13 Apr

IMG_4429

Another impressive piece of jewelry that I was lucky to find.  This one SOLD on ebay for $40.oo.  It was made by Kenneth Jay Lane and weighs over 200 grams. You would have to have stamina to keep this one on all night.  It was probably made in the late 1980’s.

Robert Larin Modernist Gold Plated Pewter Necklace 1970’s

13 Apr

Robert Larin was a well known Canadian designer based in Montreal. He made beautiful, heavily sculpted, modernist jewelry between 1968 and 1972.  His pieces are quite sought after.  This beauty weighs approx. 150 grams.  It  SOLD on ebay for $318.00 US last month.  I was ecstatic at the time of course but now I miss owning it.   Apparently these heavier large pieces did not sell well at the time and were mostly for show in the stores.  I will probably never own another one like it, but it sold to someone  in Montreal who I am sure will really appreciate the history of the piece.
