One thing I love about this dress clip is that it is marked B.I so therefore I definitely know that it is the work of Bernard Instone. It is a lovely brooch with his signature Enamel leaves and flowers which are so distinctive in his work. I think the stone is a aquamarine unfortunately it does have a small nibble but I'll get my friend to polish it out, other than that the clip is in great condition, it was probably made in the 1930s. You have to be so careful when opening the clip it's lethal, nowadays you probably wouldn't be able to sell this type of brooch due to the health and safety rules.
Many thanks for looking.
