Sterling Silver Rose Brooch by Hobé
2 7/8" x 1 1/4"
c.1940 (based on date of similar design patent)
"Hobé STERLING DESIGN PAT'D" on round cartouche
Similar to design patent D123,200, issued to William W. Hobé in 1940
This sterling silver rose brooch is just one of numerous floral pieces designed by this extraordinary maker. In my opinion, Hobé made the best sterling flowers in the 1940s. On this pin, the large blossom at the center with surrounding buds illustrate his exceptional design talent and the company’s high-level of craftsmanship. Their pieces were all hand-made at this time. The unusual design of this brooch is similar to one that was patented in 1940. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp.
