Rare 1940s Hobé 14K Gold and Sterling Amethyst Brooch
$ 1,150.00 $ 650.00
From one of the most famous and highly sought-after designers of costume jewelry, I present to you an absolutely stunning vintage sterling brooch by Hobé. This Victorian inspired brooch features hand-crafted 14K gold washed flowers and leaves, faceted Amethyst Bohemian crystals, and a beautiful wire worked sterling silver backing. This large and lovely fringed brooch has a spectacular statement quality to it - one that draws the eye in. A brooch of this quality can't be reproduced or found today.
Almost as interesting as the front, the back of this brooch features a highly skilled wire-worked design. Get lost in the swirls that combine all the elements of the brooch together.
This highly collectible brooch is one of it's kind. There are no others of the same on the market today. Fully stamped and marked "Hobé" Sterling 1/20 14K this brooch will always be a collectible and is a lovely item to wear and enjoy as an addition to your collection.
Attributed to 1945, see the Hobé patent image.

Very good vintage condition with one very minor chip in the top right of the Amethyst crystal (see 2nd photo for detail). This small imperfection is not noticeable to the eye, only visible when viewed up close. No other defects present, priced accordingly. The pin clasp is in good working order.
