Details
When Solly Danziger arrived in South Africa, from his native Lithuania, in 1918, he had only the clothes he was wearing, and a small suitcase of odds and ends he wished to sell. Before long, he opened a small shop in downtown Johannesburg and began trading as Danziger Bros. By 1925, business was booming, and Solly travelled the world – frequently to the USA and Europe – to source costume jewellery, ribbons, buttons, and anything unique and interesting to sell in his ‘Aladdin’s cave’ of a shop. Many boxes kept arriving and soon Danziger Bros was the largest haberdashery business on the African continent.

The family business eventually closed decades later, due to retirement, but a full warehouse of stock remained. This stock has lain dormant ever since - frozen in time - and much of it dates from the 1920s-1950s. In 2001, the younger generation of the family returned to the warehouse and were reminded (and more than a little astonished) at the volume and variety of stock remaining - still in original wrapping and boxes, and in perfect unused condition.

It is from this remarkable collection that our Sailing brooch emerged during a revisit in 2017. Made in the USA, and dating from around 1940, about 1,000 were discovered, and we have been able to secure 250. All are brand new and unused, but genuine vintage and supplied in their original packaging. The boat is just over an inch long - made of a light metal, with a little star on the sail. Both the boat and the anchor can be attached independently. The boat is just over 1" long and 1" tall.
