    Here we have a large Bernard Instone brooch, it marked silver but no makers mark. The stones are Moonstones and the red stones are Paste, he did use a lot of paste stones. The brooch has his typical leaves and flowers and they blend in neatly around the stones. I'm thinking this piece is either from the 1930-40s.

    Many thanks for looking

      Interesting that the brooch has a tube hing - a Victorian invention - and a rollover clasp...a 1900s invention.

      *hinge*

      I must admit that did cross my mind, the hinge does look to be Victorian, I shall go through my numerous brooches. Thanks for your comment Bonnie.
    4. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      The broad hinge is definitely Victorian. Edwardian hinges are much narrower. Very possible that this brooch was made just on the cusp of the Victorian/Edwardian era.

      Hi Bonnie this is a listing of 3 brooches which are Bernard Instone. If you look a the top brooch it also a tube hinge.
    6. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      Yes, it is - perhaps that was his hinge of choice at the time the brooch was made, which would be in keeping with the design of the piece.
    7. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 5 years ago
      Bernard Instone I suppose did his own thing Bonnie. For instance he wasn't the slightest bit interested in convention, he did his own thing, went his own way.
    8. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 5 years ago
      Oh thank you so much nutsabotas, I'm glad you like this brooch.
    9. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      That explains the beauty of his jewelry - he marched to a different drummer....
    10. Peasejean55 Peasejean55, 5 years ago
      So very true Bonnie, that's why I love his jewellery and not forgetting his spoons, brushes etc etc. I'm always finding something new that he as made. I've just recently found a silver compact which I'll post later as haven't received it yet. As always thanks for taking an interest Bonnie.

      I love the delicate leaves and flowers peeking around those stones. It has everything, in your face and subtlety!
