Brooch attr. to Dorrie Nossiter*

Item Description

Striking brooch crafted in silver with gold highlights and set with faceted pink tourmalines.

A well contoured design sweeping from left to right, the open silver construction gently tapering as it does so.

A curving row of pearls set inside little gold balls sits immediately above the lower run of tourmalines and the brooch is further detailed with silver whorls.

There is on occasion some confusion between the work of Dorrie Nossiter and that of Sibyl Dunlop, who were both active at around the same time, were friends and had similar styles. We feel however that this piece is more akin to other Nossiter brooches that we’ve come across.

Circa 1930 and a good size at almost 6 cm wide.

Ref: 15924
