This is a lovely delicate, high detailed five petaled brooch by Hobe. The brooch is washed with a translucent brown enamel and has captured the fine details of a flower. This includes a long, clear rhinestone studded pistil surrounded by delicate single rhinestone trembler like stamens in clear and brown. The deep gold finish is completely intact.
There is one slight scratch to the brown translucent enamel as seen in pictures. The fold over catch is in good working order and the brooch is signed Hobe on the back. Measurements: See photos for measurements in inches and centimeters. Condition: Overall, this brooch is in great condition for its vintage age. If it did not have the small scratch to the enamel as mentioned above, it would easily be considered in excellent condition.
It is collector worthy, gift worthy, or worthy of keeping just for yourself. As early as the mid 1800s there were goldsmiths in Europe with the name Hobe. It was in 1927 that William Hobe, grandson of goldsmith Jacques Hobe, started his own workshop in New York. Originally known for working with semi precious stones, sterling, and even 14k gold, Hobe took inspiration from antique designs. He was also an antique jewelry collector and a scholar on Medieval Arts who lectured at the Sorbonne, in Paris.
Hobe is known for high quality, finely crafted jewelry often with antique, nature, and Asian inspired themes. Come browse my collection of vintage and antique jewelry.
