I was humming and harring about this particular piece. My first opinion was it wasn't Dorrie Nossiter, I kept coming back to this brooch and going into research mode. After lots of debating, I decided it was Dorrie Nossiter particularly the berries and the silver scrollwork and wirework.
It was probably made during the 1930s, no markings, it tests as silver.
I wasn't sure about the hinge and pin, I read the sellers description and it did mention that they thought it was originally and a dress clip which would make sense as you can see on the back particularly at the bottom Blister pearl signs of a type of fitting. Dorrie Nossiter did make a lot of dress clip brooches, there is one on another of my postings.
My question is, is this a Dorrie Nossiter brooch, I could be wrong in my assumptions.
Many thanks for looking.
