1960's Birthday Series by Exquisite , February Primrose
The birthday series produced by the Solihull UK Company Exquisite is a wonderful series and very collectable. The unusual thing about this February brooch, primrose, is that is in its original 1960's box. Certainly the pad which the brooch is attached to is the original and perhaps the owner then placed it in this box. I think they should be kept together for old times sake.
The series was produced in two sizes and this is the larger version, measuring 6cms x 5cms. There is gold tone metal to the back and a well working roll in safety clasp.
I have collected and sold many of the Exquisite Birthday series. The February primrose is a particularly pretty one but then I am a February gal too. This particular one has been well loved and is showing a little wear to the enamel but I do not think it detracts from its vintage charm. There is allowance for this in the price. True vintage, and gift boxed by Exquisite
