Here are my latest Lea Stein purchases: one known as the 'Diver' (1970's) and the other one depicting Calimero (c. 1975), the unlucky baby bird from the Italian cartoon.
The diver brooch is quite large: about 12 cm long (almost 5"). It has a little fault: one of the lady's feet is missing. It is hardly noticeable and I paid ten times less than the usual price (around $200) for it. Makes it even more unique! ;)
I don't know if Calimero is famous in Anglo-Saxon countries, but it used to be very popular in France in the 70's and in the 80's. Anyway, this little fellow by Lea Stein is 5 cm (2") high. It is very rare and I was quite happy to find it for a derisory sum...
