"Hobé STERLING DESIGN PAT'D"

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 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. Scroll down to see one of his sterling silver bracelets.
