JEWELRY / I LOVE SCOTTIES English/Deutsch/Italiano







At the height of the Bakelite Costume Jewelry craze in the 1930' USA, some inventive designer copied Fala, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Scottish Terrier, as a pin for everywoman.
It became so popular that it was imitated in all materials, including rhinestones.

Didn't take long, and Europeans adopted the fashion in molded plastics, like Cellulose Acetate and Galalith (Erinoid, material derived from milk proteins). Great Britain preferred these,  colored and painted, but in spite of the controversial political situation it gained immense popularity in Germany, where it too was produced in stamped metal, wood,  sawdust bound with glue, glass....
The fashion lasted until the 1970'

The title picture shows plastic pins on a 1990' ICEBERG sweater



left yellow galalith with rhinestones, right green Bakelite, both 1930/40
links gelbes Galalith mit Strass, rechts grünes Bakelit, beide 1930/40
a sinistra galalite giallo con strass, a destra Bakelite verde, 1930/40




Auf dem Höhepunkt des Bakelit-Booms der 30er Jahre in den USA ist ein findiger Designer auf die Idee gekommen, den Hund des damaligen Präsidenten Franklin D. Roosevelt, Fala, ein Scottish Terrier, als Brosche zu kopieren.
Bald war das Subjekt so populär, dass es auch als Strass - Version auf den Markt kam.

Ziemlich rasch erfreute es sich auch in Europa grosser Beliebtheit und wurde in den verschiedensten Materialen hergestellt: Zellulose-Azetat, Galalith (ein Material aus den Proteinen der Milch), gestanztem Metall, Holz, Sägemehl mit Klebstoff vermischt und gepresst, Glas......
Trotz der politischen Gegensätze wurde diese Art von Schmuck besonders in Deutschland beliebt (wahrscheinlich wusste damals niemand über den Ursprung Bescheid) und bis in die 70er Jahre häufig produziert.
Grossbritannien zog von Anfang an die gefärbten und bemalten Kunststoff-Versionen vor. Im restlichen Europa wurden diese erst nach dem WW2 produziert.

Das Titelfoto zeigt Plastik-Broschen auf einem ICEBERG Pullover (1990')

Al culmine della popolarità della Bachelite (anni '30) negli USA qualche designer furbo ha copiato il cane dell' allora presidente Franklin D. Roosevelt, uno Scottish Terrier di nome Fala, come spilla.
Molto presto era cosi popolare che veniva fatto anche in Strass.

Piaceva anche in Europa, dove veniva prodotto in diversi materiali: Diacetato di cellulosa, Galalite (plastica derivato dalle proteine del latte), metallo stampato, legno, segatura incollata, vetro....
Nonostante le discrepanze politiche era la Germania che più adottava il soggetto (suppongo che nessuno sapeva delle origini) ed era popolare fino agli anni '70.
In Inghilterra sin da subito si preferivano le versioni in plastica colorata e dipinta, che arrivavano nel resto dell'Europa dopo la Seconda Guerra.

Not every dog pictured was actually a Scottish Terrier, some seem hybrids of two or more races

Nicht jedes Schmuckstück zeigt auch effektiv einen Scottish Terrier, einige scheinen Hybriden zu sein

Non tutti i cani sono veri Scottish Terrier, alcuni sembrano dei ibridi


Scotties with Schnauzer faces or Schnauzer with Scottie bodies?
Scotties mit Schnauzer-Gesicht oder Schnauzer mit Scottie-Körper
Scottie con faccia di Schnauzer o Schnauzer con corpo di Scottie?

  40. GOTT, die sind ja niedlich! Das hätte ich nie gedacht! Toll, dass du gleich die Geschichte mitlieferst. Sag mal liegen die eigentlich auf einen Teppich von Susi & Strolch? Das sieht total toll aus! Übrigens: Die Schmuckfirma Agatha Paris hat diese Terrier wieder adaptiert und macht wundervolle Stücke mit den süßen Hundchen. Ich liebe sie!

    1. Hallo Stella, danke :)) Iceberg hat vor ca. 20 Jahren viele Disney-inspirierte Pullover gemacht, kann also gut sein! In diesem ist keine Copyright-Etikette, ist aber möglicherweise einfach verloren gegangen. Hab mir Agatha Paris angesehen - die haben aber süße Sachen!!! Und sogar in ihrem Header einen Scottie :)))

      Liebe Grüße

  41. Allora i tuoi post sono interessantissimi, e ti dirò che non ero a conoscenza di queste cose, il maglione anni '90 è stupendo. Io uso il parka anni '90 di mia madre sempre Iceberg che dietro ha niente di meno che due cani, uno un bulldog.

  50. Interessant. Der Hund ist bekannt, wusste aber nicht, dass Roosevelts Terrier dafuer Model stand. Bei den "Hybriden" bleibt die Frage ... gewollt oder nur unfaehige Modellisten? :p

    Sind das alle Deine?
