I’ve put all three of my bracelets together and as you can see the designs are similar. The Shipton & Co and Thomas Mott bracelets are exactly the same with the flowers and leave work in the small panels. The green Agate bracelet panels have obviously no stones and the leave which are different to the other two bracelets, and the flowers are larger to compensate for having no stones, but all in all the designs are to my eye designed by the same person.
As I said in one of my other postings Bernard Instone retired in 1963 I personally think he went on to design for other companies.
I know that Sybil Dunlop finished working in 1939 but her company reopened in 1945 without her and it is well known that Bernard Instone designed and made jewellery for this company.
Many thanks for looking
