    Hello, I was wondering if anyone could give me any information about this brooch. I believe it is an unsigned Lea Stein and is one of a series of 6 that were made to celebrate the work of Alphonse Mucha. I would like to know if it is a rare one. Any help would be much appreciated.
    Best wishes

      This piece is far from my expertise, but I just had to comment on your profile picture.
      Is that your dog? He is marvelous!!!

      Yes that is my dog. She is a Dogue de Bordeaux, a big baby 47kg, nearly 3 years old and her name is Kilo. She is loved very much and has a lovely nature.

      I don't know anything about Lea Stein, but what I've seen in Judith Miller's book I got the impression Stein's work is very modern and abstract. The back on your brooch makes me think it might be older.
      Love the dog, too.

      I do know a bit about Lea Stein, I bought one of her fun brooches, new then, during a trip in Europe in 1981. A figural farmer, with green pants and brown straw hat. Much before she became very collectible. Not signed either.

      I don't know if your brooch is by her studio, but it's possible. A search was helpful:

      I always see Lea Stein cats. I can't recall seeing a piece like this before, attributed to anyone.

      In the way of the universe, just in the past day read that Lea Stein used Celluloid, & this certainly appears to be that material or another related one.

      Had not heard of Alphonse Mucha before, until, just in the last day, this turned up in my inbox:

      I would research what kind of pins were used on genuine Stein pieces & how they were attached. It may give you some clues. :)
