Have you started someone a Vintage Brooches
collection by giving them a brooch as a gift? Or do you know someone who you would like to start a collection for? Here are some ideas of collectable brooches which are quite wearable too. As its nearly Christmas and we are looking at gifts I'll make a change from my normal way and look at them in price order
Budget Vintage Brooches
Looking to by lots of presents on a budget or give a great start to a collection in one go? Consider one of AntiquesAvenue's vintage brooch collections ready made. There is currently a great selection including a harlequin vintage brooch collection from circa 1940s
Here is a collection of 9 vintage brooches. These are all made of filigree metal and are set with a harlequin coloured range of diamante stones. These brooches all date from circa 1930s and are the type which were made in Czechoslovakia.
These brooches would normally sell for over £200 if they were sold individually but as I have so many brooches for sale at the moment I am offering these as a collection at a bargain price. 8 of these brooches have a standard catch on the back , one is a clip type. The longest brooch measures about 7 cms long and the smallest is just under 4 cms wide. All of these vitnage brooches are in excellent condition
I also have a vintage brooch collection in red and some great pairs of brooches from about £25.
I believe that some vintage brooches make a great investment for the future and would be suitable for a younger person who will keep and treasure them for many years and at the same time be able to see a rise in value. Investment brooches are likely to have a designer name take a look at Christian Dior, Norman Hartnell, Trifari or Yves St Laurent.
