    I could really do with some help with this brooch. The brooch as a lovely large MOP in the middle surrounded with typical art and craft decoration of leaves and berries. The Gaskins or Guild of handicrafts come to mine, but to be honest I really have no idea. There are no marks.
    Many thanks for looking

      Can't help either, but I love this at most!

      Thank you Judy, Karen and kyra. I'm hoping that someone might come along and have a idea. If not it's a lovely old art and craft design. I can't get over how the pearl changes colour with the light. Thank you all for your comment, they are appropriated.

      Simply elegant - lovely.
    13. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 4 years ago
      I would love to find out the maker Gillian, I asked a friend I know, he didn't think it was the Gaskins, shame that's what I was hoping for. I'll just have to keep researching or hopefully someone will pass by on this post and know. Gillian, I do appreciate your comments thank you.

      This is a beautiful piece Jean! I love the mother of pearl with its lovely colors and uneven surface - which reminds me of natural pearls.

      That's okay Jean better late than never huh?
    19. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 4 years ago
      I'm shattered Rick lol, travelling here there and everywhere in the U.K. To top it all I've come down with the dreaded flu. I was suppose to go back to Spain yesterday, but didn't feel up to it. I was flying back on the 28th Jan so I'll be spending more time with my Mum, poor mum lol.
    20. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 4 years ago
      Meaning I was flying back from Spain to the U.K. On the 28th Jan.

      Look at the bright side Jean, your mom gets to see you for a few more days, so I'm sure that makes her happy :) I hope it passes soon!

      Wow! That is a real keeper and so beautiful. The colors are so vibrant. So many get dull over time due to hairsprays, perfumes etc...keep it away from those things and try not to touch it too much, the oils from our fingers do the same things to them. Nice find!!!
    23. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 4 years ago
      Thank you so much for your information shareurpassion, I'll keep what you say In mind.

      Looks somewhat like abalone with that rainbow effect.Could be Mexican, many decades past.I love it!!
    26. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 4 years ago
      Oops PostCardCollector, I've only just seen your comment. Personally I think this is a British art and Craft brooch, the leaves are so typical of the art and craft movement. Thanks for comment, it's much appreciated.
    27. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 4 years ago
      Of course this belongs to you! Who else can find such a gorgeous MOP piece...and I see I have already loved it, well this proves it ;)
    28. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 4 years ago
