Erstwilder brooches are designed in Melbourne, Australia and I am proud to say I was their first official UK stockist. These fun, quirky brooches are made of resin and each design is part of a limited edition of between 200-300 pieces.
The more popular characters are sometimes re-released in different colours. They come in Erstwilder gift boxes and each is accompanied by a pink teapot swingtag.
Lea Stein Jewellery
Lea Stein was born in Paris and married Fernand who was a chemist. He discovered a process of laminating layers of celluloid with various other materials, i.e. fabric, lace, straw etc. and from this she started designing jewellery and accessories. She began with buttons and moved on to brooches, necklaces, earrings and bracelets, as well as mirrors, combs and photo frames. Her designs include cat and dog brooches as well as other animal and birds.
She ceased trading in 1981 and started again several years later. As well as releasing some of her vintage pieces she produces a few new designs each year. Her jewellery has become highly collectable in countries all around the world.
All the brooches I sell have the 'V' shaped signed pin on reverse unless otherwise stated.
Just a note to let you know that forest arrived safe this morning and he's lovely!
Thank you so much for your correspondence, timely shipping and of course, lovely items! It makes such a difference to purchasing online when you are actually dealing with a nice person!

I have ordered 11 erstwilder brooches from you (so far 😉), over the past few months, and they have always arrived really well packaged, very quickly and your communication is great! Also, you always stay on top of the new releases so that I don't have to wait (as I am quite impatient, lol!) like I would if I were to order them from Australia. So, in a nutshell, I just want to thank you for the fantastic customer care you provide!
