Reference

Similar to design patent D123,200, issued to William W. Hobé in 1940

In my opinion, Hobé made the best sterling silver flowers in the 1940s. On this brooch, the large blossom at the center with surrounding buds illustrate his extraordinary 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.
