Lovely broaches

I was in the Notting Hill Gate area last weekend and saw these





in the window of an vintage shop.  My first thought was that @Ravingdoll would love these.

I love that tall cat one, if only it was black. I have a very similar fox brooch from Tatty Devine.

Love Lea Stein. I particularly like some of the foxes.

@Iminei: I don't know.  Some of them have a mother of pearl sheen, but I think that is just the effect of whatever material was used.

Gorgeous brooches. I do have a fair collection of Bakelite and the like but there’s always room for more.

My favourite is the white fox in the first photo.
