LEA STEIN BROOCH - THE EDELWEISS IN RED GREEN BLACK & MOP

This edelweiss brooch was designed by Lea Stein somewhere between 1968 and 1980 (according to the Lea Stein Jewellery book.)  Of course so many of her designs have been reproduced over the years.  Do watch out for the copies/fakes being made in China - they may be cheaper but they are not so nice!  The designs that are being copied are the more popular one - cats, dogs etc.  I does make me angry that Ms. Stein has spent a lifetime building up her business - and is still active at 80 years - and people think it O.K. to make cheap copies.  Why can't they design their own jewellery!  Price £65 ref: 3024 C56/6
