Vintage Bow Brooches

Bow brooches have been popular since the 18th Century. In the 1930's Eisenberg Originals started reproducing some of the pieces and did such quality work that stores began to have a problem with shoplifting. I wonder if the bow brooch worn by Norma Sheerer in Marie Antoinette was an Eisenberg Original? I noticed in Cheri that Michelle Pfeiffer wears a tiny bow pin at her neck. It's a bit difficult to see in the photo above but it is absolutely charming. My favorite Christmas present this year was from my dear friend Holly who gave me a huge Eisenberg bow that I have worn on my sweaters, jeans, headbands, hats, coats and anywhere else I can pin it to show it off. It adds a touch of girly bling to anything.


  1. I am in love with bows too! In the new Chanel biography there is a photo of a necklace she had that was a bow. Still classic today.

  2. You always have the best, 'crack'!
