    No mistaking this is the work of one of my favourite designers Dorrie Nossiter. This brooch is so typical of her work, the silver leaves and berries mingling in between the Moonstones. The Moonstones have differing wonderful blue hue colours, very pretty. Each Moonstone cabochon are different in shape, size and hight, I've tried to capture this on the photos.
    This brooch in my opinion is a wonderful example of her work. There are no hallmark has was usual for Dorrie Nossiters work, it was probably made during the 1930s.
    Many thanks for looking

      Love the brooch! I rarely see intricate jewellry with moonstones around where I live. I think the brooch is wonderful!
    2. Celiene Celiene, 6 years ago
      Beautiful. Add Moonstones as a second category!
    3. wpj wpj, 6 years ago
      Stunning.

      Isn't this wonderful Jean. I don't know how you find such wonders.
      Even with the marvellous handwork she has been so clever leaving the top of the ring plain- it just balances so well.
      (I have to say your hands are star worthy!)
    5. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      Thank you for your comment Elisabethan, the Moonstones are wonderful and the way she has set them, well what you say, She is such a skilful designer, I absolutely love her work.
    6. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      Thank you Celiene, for you lovely comment, I did try to add Moonstones as a second category, but for some reason it wouldn't all me.
    7. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      Many thanks for great comment wjp, I am a great admirer of your beautiful pieces you have put on CW.
    8. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      Hi Karen, ???? thanks for your comments, I don't know were to start first, I really appreciate your comments on my hands lol. Yes this brooch is a cracker, it has everything, and them Moonstones take your breath away. I Suppose it's luck and in some degree hard work finding these things, this one was bought from a person I know. Yet again Karen thanks for dropping by.

      Hi karen I did put a smiley face on, but it's come up with loads of question marks.

      I'm well thanks Jean. The brooch is lovely. Was this the one you were thinking of buying?
    12. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      You have a good memory, yes I decided to take the plunge after our little talk about brooches.
    13. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Jean! That's a super buy!
      I love all in it, drooling...
    14. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Have a look to this one, described as Sybil Dunlop...

      Oh no kyra, I didn't see this one, usually I only look at the auctions, oh dash. By the way thanks for your comment :-)

      Did you got the "dunlop" earrings?
      ;-)
    18. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      Ahhhh, but they weren't Dunlop earrings, were you watching the auction?
    19. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Yes Jean, I was watching and bid far less (poor for now!) He he... I'm watching ... YOU! Mwahaha ;-)
      Yep, Nossiter, I advised seller, but no answer and listed them again as Dunlop :-/
      He had a matching brooch, I suppose it will be listed again as auction :-)
    20. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      Yes, I hold my hands up I'm the guilty party, I'd been watching them for 9 days. Now I'm poor :-(
    21. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      No more brooches kyra, lol

    24. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      It's a good job it's been sold, phew, I'm relieved lol. I don't understand the seller, it's obviously Dorrie Nossiter not Sybil Dunlop.
    25. Jewels1900 Jewels1900, 6 years ago
      Jean, outbid me. Those earrings went for a lot of money. Mind you, they are very good & Nossitor (of course).
    26. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      Oops Jewel1900 sorry. They have broken the Bank but I think they are worth it. I've looked online and haven't seen a pair like these. I was thinking, what should I do with the top, I don't want Shephard hooks, but I think a yellow citrine or carnelian red stud would go nicely, I'm debating what colour. would value your opinion and anybody else who see this comment.
    27. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      If you don't want shepherd's hook, I think this kind of earrings would be suitable (more likely citrine, and bigger stud, with an open ring to hang the hoop.)

      Do you remember the hooks I used with my Nossiter jadeite drops?http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/145022-dorrie-nossiter-earrings-completed
    29. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      Hi kyra, I have found some Citrine stud drop earrings which would match nicely. The problem I have is I used to wear very heavy earrings when I was younger, the holes have stretched, so I need the support of post earrings, I can imagine these earrings are going to be heavy. Thanks for your help kyra :-)
    30. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      I found something for your "Raoni chief" ears...

      LOL!
    31. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      I buy them from Clare's in Spain and the UK, I really do need them they are great support. Lol
    32. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Aah! Good to know they work, I wondered if the support was efficient :-)
    33. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 6 years ago
      They are really good, I highly recommend them.

      I've been looking on Pinterest at the Dorrie Nossiter earrings I bought, for the record I didn't pay anywhere near that price, it certainly would have broken the bank.

      I thought you might be interested to know that I have a pendant and ear-rings which match this brooch. (I did have a second pair of ear-rings, but stupidly lost them! They may be out there somewhere....). I found all three items on separate occasions, for reasonable prices, too! I expect you've seen the website about Dorrie, which her nephew has set up? If not, it's well worth a look.
    38. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 5 years ago
      Hi Dorriefan, first of all let me apologize for my late response. Yes I have seen the website your talking about. I would have been gutted if I would have lost a pair of earrings by her, how sad. I'm always on the look out for her jewellery, unfortunately her pieces are going for very high prices. Thanks for you comment, it's much appreciated.
