Antique Silver Sweetheart Brooch Heart and Flowers HM 1917 1918 Maker P and T
A lovely silver sweetheart brooch dating from 1917 - 1918 - the latter years of World War One. This sentimental little brooch with a heart and flowers 3D design was most likely given as a gift from a loved one to his sweetheart, all the more poignant because of the time that it was made and given.
The brooch is fully hallmarked on the back for the Birmingham assay office, the date letter for 1917 - 18 and the maker's monogram P & T - Pearce and Thompson of Vyse Street Birmingham. Despite being made outside of the Edwardian period, the brooch is very typically late Victorian / Edwardian in style.
The brooch is 1 3/4 inches long and the pin fastens securely to a c-shaped clasp. Would make a lovely gift or a treat for yourself. It is in very good antique condition, ready to wear.
