Charles Horner is more known for the Art Deco silver jewellery it produced here in Halifax UK. However, they also made a wide range of costume jewellery, ornaments, buttons, hat pins, thimbles and other metal and plastic items.
One range was the Staybright shiny metal costume jewellery with dimpled surfaces that glitters and are a poor mans “marcasite” repro. Very collectable today.

There was also a wide range of cameo pieces produced in casein – a type of plastic. Very recognizable.
Most of these Charles Horner pieces are unsigned. Occasionally you will see the C H mark. Fun collectables and of course made in England. For any Charles Horner items we have to buy.
