Bernard Instone Galleon Brooch*
Super little silver brooch in the form of a galleon under sail on the high seas.
No background, the outline simply being that of the galleon itself together with the bow wave as it cuts through the surface of the water.
With a lightly hammered finish and showing an aged patina which we have left unpolished.
Marked verso silver and with the BI maker’s mark for Bernard Instone.
The brooch is the merest fraction under 6 cm high by approximately 4 cm wide.
