Small collection of vintage czechoslovak glass brooches I bought online. They are made in the bold , colorful "Brusel" style, popular in Czechoslovakia in the late 1950s, 1960s and 1970. Brusel style fashion started with the 1958 Expo in Brussel, where Czechoslovakia won several awards ( for example for the architecture or for the bohemian garnets jewelry).
Such brooches are still commonly found in todays Czech republic and Slovakia, hence their price is not high. I like this style...so bold, so unusual... but would not dare to wear it!
