giveaway vintage reproduction

Classic Hardware Giveaway!

5:09 PMDollie DeVille

With Bakelite getting more and more expensive I am always looking for good reproductions. I have especially been wanting brooches, but bakelite brooches are sooooo expensive. Well it looks like I found what I was looking for. I had the pleasure of getting some of Classic Hardware's Retrolite brooches for review and I am thrilled with them! 



Each one came packed in a little bubble wrap envelope on a Classic Hardware card and a little business card insert. 

The owner gave me a tip that the pins look good when worn together, so I bought them in groups that matched each other: a green angel fish and seahorse, a red horse and a cowboy and a cherry pin.

The first thing that I noticed about the pin is the weight. These are not cheapy light-weight pins, oh no. These are deeply carved, heavy broaches with a sturdy pin that won't pop open on you. The pin is well secured to the piece of retrolite. There is also a Classic Hardware stamp on the back of each one. It took me a while to notice that!  

The cherry pin has cherries dangling off what looks to be a reproduction of a vintage dress clip. As you can see, the hardware that comprises this pin in impeccable. The chains are nice and thick and soldered on, so you don't feel like it is going to break while you wear it. This morning I actually put it through the washer and dryer on accident, but I will say it was part of the testing process. It came out of the wash completely unharmed. Not a scratch on it! It still was in impeccable shape, just cleaner! I dare you to put a vintage bakelite cherry pin through the wash.

I wore the pins everyday last week (and most of this week) for my Outfit Of The Day series. They are sooooo versatile. They really match everything. The Classic Hardware site has so many options too. I still want the Scottie dog, the cat, and the swallow. They also make retrolite bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings. The Retrolite is just a small portion of the jewelry they have available. They are actually more well known for their sterling silver and art jewelry. 

I knew this fish brooch would match this Shaheen perfectly. 

I didn't want to limit myself to using the pins on my clothing either. I thought they would be a great addition to a purse or hat! I think it is so cute!

  17. Hey Doll!

    I am digging the cherry one!! Is the pin thin enough not to leave huge holes in your clothes or do you find that you have to put them in a strategic place due to the pin leaving large holes?

    I love pins but am always terrified of making huge holes in my vintage dresses but if you were okay with putting one of these in a Shaheen then I'm assuming it's not as bad as I think??
