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.
