    Sterling Rose Bough & Wildflowers 1940s Brooch by Hobé

    , ,

    In my opinion, Hobé made the best sterling silver flowers in the 1930s-1940s, and the large flower at the center of this 1940s brooch illustrates his extraordinary talent. The center is embellished with surrounding sterling buds. Pieces by this maker were all hand-made at this time. This one has an unusual design.
