Red Galalith Art Deco Necklace

You could not get more Art Deco than this galalith and white metal necklace! It was made in Czechoslovakia in the 1930's. It is very light and easy to wear. I love these necklaces - which were often made by a factory called Jacob Bengel in Germany. This one is great because it's origin is different - and it doesn't look quite the same. It would look good with some 1930's clothes - but equally it would also go with a contemporary outfit! More details on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com

Bought a fabulous compact - the Coty "sleigh bells" compact - introduced in 1942. It has 6 little bells and space for rouge and powder. Really excited about this - I have never had one before. It's quite mad! For a fuller description see my own web site - www.gillianhorsup.com

Norman Hartnell Faux Pearl and White Paste Necklace

Thrilled to find a Norman Hartnell necklace - haven't had anything of his for so long. He was the Queen's dressmaker for many years and also designed his own jewellery. This is a very simple necklace of faux pearls and white paste forming a necklace of small flowers. It is marked on the back. Would be ideal for a wedding. It is £120. www.gillianhorsup.com

I used to be able to buy these Art Deco short hat pins/hat flashes/cloche pins - depending on your choice! They are now getting hard to find - especially the double ended, coloured ones. Was pleased to get this one - and can supply an end for it if you need one. They look great in hats or on jacket lapels - especially if you are in to Art Deco! They are usually made of celluloid. www.gillianhorsup.com
