Mid Century Exquisite Rare Brooch Multicoloured Lucite Leaves And Crystals:
VINTAGE BROOCH BY EXQUISITE.WITH LUCITE AND CRYSTALS.SIGNED ON BACK.THIS IS ONE OF THE EARLY PRODUCT,FROM THE 50'S.ExquisiteThis was one of the ranges produced by the Watson Group Ltd. Originally started by W A P Watson (Walter Archibald Parker) a gilt chain maker in the late Victorian period to the early twentieth century. He sold gilt chains in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. In 1914 WAP Watson went of to WW1 and sold his business to Augustus Power and Clarence Flint. They kept the founders name and continued to produce costume and a small range of silver only stopping to assist in war work as necessary for both WW1 (and WW2). It was possible that WAP Watson intended to return but he was injured and invalid out of the Royal Warwick Regiment in 1923.In1954 the company introduced "Exquisite Company" and instead of producing jewellery as a wholesaler as previous, W A P Watson's now started to produce their own named jewellery (and souvenirs) direct to the retailers.They continued producing imitation jewellery and souvenirs until the 1970s, where the influx of cheap jewellery from Hong Kong and other Asian areas made it difficult to continue. Many of the UK and world wide jewelers were forced to close their doors in this period.ALL ORIGINAL STONES,WAS IN MY PRIVATE COLLECTION !NOW I LET IT GO ,MAKE HAPPY ANOTHER ONE !
