machine age bengel brooch

1930s Vintage Deco Brooch • Jakob Bengel Era

Regular price £50.00
This Deco brooch is so evocative of a Jakob Bengel design, his work it isn't generally signed but this is in his style so much.
  • A timeless classic of the machine age, art deco period and as wonderful to wear now as it was then. A great collector's piece of Deco modernist jewellery.
  • A bow shaped design made with 3 chrome bars shaped into a wave form and finished with chrome balls on the ends, sitting on a diagonal are shaped black early plastic wings, very likely to be galalith, with a central larger chrome ball.  It looks a little like a propeller.
  • The chrome band is screwed in place on the underside to the plastic.
  • Safety pin design pin, which is a fixing used in the earlier years.

Measures: (to FOLLOW) approx 2"

Condition - There is  slight pitting and natural aging patina but still solid and it is still very wearable.

Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing
