    Hello all, I showed this brooch ( first image ) some time ago wanting to know if anyone had any idea as to the artist. I was looking at a book today and noticed a brooch with very similar leaves on the front cover ( pic 3 ) I have taken a close up of the brooch ( pic 2) , sorry it’s night time here and the pics are with flash. Can anyone please suggest a maker for the brooch that is shown on the front of the book the one I have enlarged in pic 2 . Inside the brooch is described as “ Amethyst and Silver open circle Ivy Leaf brooch “ from the Purple Shop ? Thanks and hope you are all fine !

      Here's a link to the 2nd post that you did for this Brooch, with a photo of the back:

      https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/278365-arts-and-crafts-brooch-back-view

      I enlarged that photo, and the back is so different from the front, it doesn't have a finished look, that a better quality Jewelry Designer would have, so I think it will be very hard find out who the maker was. I really love the style of this Brooch though, and it still has the look! :^)

      Sorry Sue one question, did you have your Brooch tested for silver content? I ask that because Silver is a Color, and a lot of things marked just Silver and no other marks, can mean Silver Metal(not Sterling), or Silver Plate. Just something to be aware of. Good Luck! :^)

      Hello billretirecoll thanks again for your comments, very helpful. No I have not had the brooch tested for sterling. I am collecting arts and crafts pieces and many of them are just marked silver or else not marked at all. Cheers ! Sue

      Well spotted, same maker but I still don't know who it is. Out of interest, who does the book say is the maker of the two big pieces in the middle?
    6. Hollyhocks Hollyhocks, 2 months ago
      Hi jewels1900, it’s so frustrating when you finally find a lead ,to a piece you are trying to attribute , and there is no maker stated. Likewise for the pieces you asked about. Very obvious and Uninformative information provided ...... silver , amethyst ect , price guide of 2000 pounds And 1200 pounds respectively
    7. Jewels1900 Jewels1900, 2 months ago
      Even if a lead falls flat, every new find gives you more design elements to look for. Thanks for the info on the other two pieces. Thats a significant price guide.
