New to the Shop: Hand Painted Flapper Lady Portrait Brooches

We've just added these two flapper lady pins to our shop.  Highly collectible, these fun brooches are hard to find, particularly as the are hand painted. 

The first brooch is porcelain and features a sophisticated black haired beauty.  She is visiting with a brightly colored butterfly friend.  Bold flowers accent the bottom.  She has a luster finish.  While usually we strive for perfection, she is does have her flaws (the finish has flaked away on the flowers) but then don't we all?

The second brooch is sea-foam green pearlized celluloid and features another flapper who could be her sister as she is another belle with raven tresses.  While her sister is more bohemian and finds joy in nature.  You can just tell that she enjoys the good things in life. Like her dramatic rose adorned picture hat and matching beaded necklace.  Or sipping tea, or cocktails, with friends!
