    When I saw the auction for this brooch, I thought the enamel may be Charles Fleetwood Varley.

    Now I have it in hand, I'm not sure...

    The surface is uneven, and it doesn't looks Varley's quality...

    What do you think, Arts and Crafts era specialists?

    It is marked TLM for Thomas L.Mott, well known for his butterfly wings jewellery!

    Size: 3.6cm or 1.7/16"

      Love the profile photo of the puppies, they are very sweet. Are they new additions?they look very similar to a German Pointer?
    4. Caperkid, 3 years ago
      Yep cutest pups ever.
    5. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Nice one!! And great link that Gary sent. Very cool!
    6. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      It is really lovely Pascale! I like TLM butterfly wing pieces, but I like this one more!!
    7. mikelv85 mikelv85, 3 years ago
      Very nice indeed ! :)
    8. Agram.m Agram.m, 3 years ago
      Maker: Thomas Mott, butterfly wings, lovely!
    9. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Jean, yes, new addition :-)) They are Auvergne (french region) pointers mix.
      Thank you and Caperkid too for loving my twins!

      Scott, many thanks, my friend!

      Judy, I love these too, but have none yet ;-) Thank you!

      Mike thank you for your nice comment and love :-)

      Marga, hi! Yes, Thomas Mott, but no butterfly wing here... It is enamel, and I wonder who made enamel for Mott :-)
      Thank you for your visit and comment :-))

      Fleafinder, Pops, Bonnie, Spiritbear, Martika, Vetraio, Phil and Valentino, love back to you!!!

      I found some info here about shipton and mott that looks interesting !

      Hi Judy, I've just read your link, its very interesting.
    13. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 3 years ago
      Kyra, the TLM you posted is very similar to your above link
    14. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      Another enamel one but not sterling, quite pretty!

    15. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Judy, so many thanks for your interesting link to Shipton!!!
      Your last link too, it is a painted miniature, it seems TLM made several scenics in this medium. Enamels seem scarcer from what I saw on the Images search :-)

      Jean, yes!

      Many thanks for your lovely visit, Mike, Marga, Davyd, LovelyPat, Karen and Rick!
    16. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 3 years ago
      Hi Pascale, the Shipton name is getting around isn't it! I was looking at a bfly wing pendant on ebay,wondering why it was listed as Shipton when the only marking on it was a pattern number 202213 Sterling England!! This lead me to that article........amazing isn't it!!
    17. Jewels1900 Jewels1900, 3 years ago
      Sorry Kyra. Don't think this is a Varley one.
    18. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Judy, you are a clever detective :-))

      Jewels1900, don't be sorry! I thought it wasn't when I got it in hand :-)
      Thank you for stopping and confirmation!

      Many thanks for your visit and love, Freiheit, Sean, NevadaBlades and Poire!

      I know absolutely nothing about these makers but can tell you what is depicted because it is a common subject on cameos that are souvenirs of Naples:

      http://cameotimes.com/index.php/profiles-1/miscellaneous/mt-vesuvius
    20. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Thank you very much, Cameosleuth! I was thinking a mount in Great Britain, with a moor in foresight, but you may be right with mount Vesuvius :-)
    21. cameosleuth cameosleuth, 3 years ago
      The addition of tussocks is rather strange & they do suggest a moor, but the outline of the double cones of Vesuvius is very distinctive. It may be a fantasy landscape inspired by the view over the Bay of Naples. :)
    22. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Yep, you're right, probably a fantasy landscape, artist view :-)
