Item details

This is an unusual pair of vintage paste-set items! They are absolutely stunning and my photos can't do them justice. I have paired them because I thought that if you make your own clothing, these might be useful for a very special project. Otherwise, they may be useful to someone who makes period style clothing for theatrical purposes.

Both items are from around the same period - I'd say somewhere close to the 1930s - maybe a little earlier.

The first item is a very large (3 and a quarter inches in diameter approx) circular dress embellishment. It has four 'lugs' on the back so that it can be sewn onto a dress. I would imagine that it may have been stitched to an evening dress around the solar plexus, tummy area. It would certainly look wonderful used in this way, as the paste stones are all present and they really sparkle.

The second item is a very large, oval buckle that has three rows of paste stones set in claws. The stones are in beautiful condition. One stone has been replaced with a modern rhinestone, but the rest are all original. This would look fabulous on an evening dress. It could possibly be converted to use as a brooch. The size is approximately 3 and a half inches at the widest points. It is a stunner!

Your jewellery will be sent in a smart, buff coloured cardboard gift box tied with a blue satin ribbon.


FAQs

I gladly accept custom and personalised orders, however, there will be a non-refundable charge of 40% of the final cost of the item, payable in advance, once the custom order design has been agreed. In the unlikely event that a buyer is not satisfied with their custom order, I do accept returns on custom items, as a goodwill gesture, but the amount refunded would be less the original 40% deposit. This is to cover the cost of time spent and my financial outlay on materials.
