Fantastic workmanship a real piece of art????
Interesting trying to work out the subject matter of the fob,is the letter date for 1906 ? I’m not sure it’s even depicting a sport the chaps dress and what he’s holding doesn’t strike me as being spo...
Hi Jean, The brooch looks lovely,I’m blown away by the quality of his workmanship Mr Instone was a very talented artist,my brooch is the same bar for the colours being different????
Hi Jean,well done,I thought you might have got it,I expect the stones in mine are garnets then but they don’t usually react on my gem tester,no matter they are both lovely brooches and its quite a coi...
Jean,one very similar sold on eBay a few days ago,were you the lucky winner by any chance ?
All became clearer with the better photos,well done Pascale she was spot,very interesting and unusual piece????

Thanks Jean,much appreciated ????
Thanks for the replies,it’s good to know what I kinda thought has been confirmed,I bought it in a job lot of brooches,not having any idea it was a Bernard Instone,love to do the research on all the st...
