    I love this piece due to the detailing! It has gold and rose gold accents in the face design. The piece itself is highly detailed and the clasp is in beautiful condition. It has some stamped markings which I am unfamiliar with and can only partially read (thanks to my old lady eyes). I would love help identifying this piece!
    Uploaded better images of the markings...maybe it will help. I thought maybe it was H.L & Co but the markings don't match the silversmith markings listed, so I don't think that's correct. :/

      This was made in England many, many moons ago. I had a brooch very similar to this one. The flowers are gold.
      Lion Passant for sterling silver.
      Anchor means it was assayed in Birmingham.
      Date letter - looks like a lower case p (?) It's a bit rubbed.

      The initials above are the maker's initials, which looks like "___L& Co"

      This brooch is Victorian (tube hinge). I would know more if I could make out the date letter and maker's initials.

      Liberty & Co the L & Co stand alone when i filtered picture, the other mark before it is not same stamp.
    4. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 5 years ago
      Pretty brooch, I don't think it's Liberty & Co. To me it's Victoian, it doesn't tick all the boxes. Very pretty brooch, that's the main thing.
    5. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 5 years ago
      LOwer case P date letter would be 1950's??
    6. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 5 years ago
      Liberty has been around since 1875 or so
    7. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 5 years ago
      I'm sorry, I meant to say it ticks all the boxes for a Victoian brooch, it looks in a way to be Ascetic. Good luck with your research
    8. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 5 years ago
      Dizzydace, it does have a C clasp which in my opinion makes it Victorian. Yes it could be Liberty, but I personally don't think it is.

    11. Jennsblingthing Jennsblingthing, 5 years ago
      Uploaded some better images of the markings and did a little more research. I found out what is wasn't, but still not what t was lol

      Dizzydave thank you!!!!
    16. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 5 years ago
      Those new images made it very clear!
    17. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      George Loveridge and Co and I'd go for 1881 .... a lower case 'g'. 1895 would be a 'v', I think.
