    These three brooches were made during the 1930s. Kyra will recognise one of these brooches, the silver hammered brooch with the two twisted wire shape hearts at either side, and the enamel middle. The other two have also the enamel middle, I'm always mystified that people mistake this enamel for Turquiose. I shall put a link below which will explain what I mean, also I can't believe that the brooch in this link Is marked B.I and they have said nothing in the write up about this, B.I is for Bernard Instone. All three of these brooches are marked Sterling Silver, and the maker is Bernard Instone, no marks of course but there is no mistaking his work.
    Many thanks for looking

      Thank you Elesgirl for saying my brooches are BEE-U-TEE-FOOL. Thankyou also to AnneLanders and gardinerth for leaving your lovely comments :-)
      Hi kyra, from taking your advise over the last year I have learnt so much from you, I now watch for those write ups with the wrong descriptions, I don't always get it right, but I'm learning.
