Fashion Accessories & Costume Jewellery
1956 British Leaflet




Fashion Accessories and Costume Jewellery
1956
(Mon Amie Jewellery)
I was thrilled when Mary Walden-Till of the UK offered to send me scans of a 1956 accessory and jewellery trade leaflet she had found.    There is just not much information on British costume jewellery companies, so this little leaflet is a treasure.   Images are property of   Illusion Jewels Vintage Jewellery  and Mary Walden-Till.  You will notice I used the British spelling of "jewellery" in honor of Mary!

Some of the companies mentioned are probably stores where the jewellery was being sold, rather than the actual manufacturer of the jewellery.
