“Steward of Memories” Storybox Brooch

Past Pieces

“Steward of the Memories”, Elephant Storybox brooch.

This wonderful little brooch features the most beautiful little red leather antique brooch case, from the early 1900’s. It hangs from an enamelled vintage pin, which says “steward”, and from the bottom of the case, hangs the most adorable tiny silver and freshwater pearl tail, which is c. 1910, and was originally an earring. Inside you will find the tiniest of carved elephants, c. late 1800’s. He is gazing at the moon (a 1930’s mother of pearl button), and drifting above him is a tiny love heart, from 1950’s earrings. The fabric this all sits on is the darkest of blue velvets, embellished with tiny jet beads. It is a fragment of a Victorian evening jacket. A lovely conversation piece of wearable art.
