This is an example of the very scarce women's head brooches made by Elzac in the early 1940's. These pins were unsigned, but they have characteristics which help to identify them. The faces were made of ceramics or carved wood, sometimes with accents made of lucite, and decorated with scraps of fabric, leather, feathers, fur, wood and other items. This exotic gal has a ceramic face, a neck piece with leather, and a hat with wooden ornaments and a leather brim. Her remaining earring is also made of wood. For more information about Elzac and Victims of Fashion brooches, please consult "Warman's Costume Jewelry Figurals" book by Kathy Flood, pp. 46 - 49.
