Hobe 1950's Vintage Brooch
The Hobe company began in New York during the 1920's after the original Mr. Hobe had been living there for some time after arriving from Paris. The company very quickly gained a reputation for high quality costume jewellery emulating precious metals and stones. Their jewellery was worn by not only Ziegfield Follies but many of the movie stars of the Hollywood era. This lovely floral pin has two large flower heads and one smaller one and a trademark of Hobe was the lovely gold tone vermeil they used for the floral buds shown here centred with faux amethyst. The petals are faceted pale amethyst glass. Overall dimension -6cms x 3cms. In perfect condition with firm roll over clasp and Hobe signature to the back. Gift boxed by Vintageonline.
