    This is an enormous Bernard Instone Silver and enamel brooch. There is a similar brooch in the Victoria and Albert museum in London, I will put a link of this brooch in the comments. I suppose you would have sworn this on a lapel because it weighs a hefty 28 grams. The enamel is mainly green but there is a colour change to a teal colour at the bottom of one of the leaves. There are 4 pearls each on the 2 stems. The brooch was made during the 1940s and is marked B.I

    Many thanks for looking
