Retro Brooches (Each)

R140.00R150.00

Jewellery’s not really my thing, but sometimes I come across some great pieces on my travels, and then it’s pretty hard to walk away from them. I bought these fabulous brooches together with a larger collection of brooches that I’ll feature on Mint sometime in the next few weeks, but I thought that these two went particularly well together. The quality of this pair is also a bit better than the rest of the pieces, in fact for a moment I thought they might actually be silver, but on reflection I don’t think so. The round Scottish-inspired thistle brooch was produced by A. Hill & Company LTD of Birmingham, and is stamped ‘Miracle‘, the company’s trading name. Miracle jewellery has been in production since 1946, but I think this piece probably dates to around the 1960s, about the same time as the longer floral brooch. Both brooches are very well made, and quite beautifully executed! They’re not going to be to everyone’s taste, but I think for someone with the right style, these brooches are going to look really fabulous!
