CHARLES HORNER - SNAKE BROOCH - YELLOW CASEIN & CHROME

Until the book was published on Charles Horner it was not widely known that he produced costume jewellery, buttons etc. in casein plastic after diversifying in the 1920's.  (Charles Horner of Halifax - Tom J Lawson - GML Publishing.)  This brooch is in yellow casein and chrome with red glass stone eyes.  See full description on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - I always buy this brooch if I can find it - but I do not remember ever having a yellow one before.
