Recently I bought this wonderful brooch, I have been doing some research and I think it Is Liberty & Co brooch.
If you look at the hallmark there is a L & unfortunately the last mark is worn, but I believe it to be Liberty & Co.
I been in contact with a person I know, for advice, I sent him the photos and he also believes it is Liberty brooch. He believes it's a commission piece, he also told me it would a good idea to get in contact with Liberty & Co to see if there are any records.
A little bit about the brooch, it as a hallmark for Birmingham and was made in 1912. The stones are diamonds and it as a lovely blue Schiller moonstone in the middle. It's is marked 18 ct white gold which I was told was unusual for Liberty. The the catch was a C clasps originally but I was told that the roller catch was probably added later as a safer method.
This is wonderful brooch, I was very lucky to buy it at a extremely reasonably price.
Any comments would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks for looking
