BESSIE - Edwardian Silver Name Brooch Bessie dated Birmingham 1908

 'BESSIE' is the name on this Edwardian sterling silver name brooch. This pretty name is written out in  silver block capital letters applied to the real silver antique brooch to great effect.  The bar brooch has been engraved with dot and line and feather type markings and is a decorative shape too.  Measuring an inch and three quarters in length and about three quarters of an inch at its widest point, this brooch finishes with an old fashioned 'c' type clasp - in common with Victorian and 19th Century brooches and pins.  It has the full Hallmark for Birmingham ( the Anchor), the lion passant to show that it is sterling silver and the letter 'i' for the year 1908; there is also the maker's mark 'W.D.B.' but I haven't been able to find out any more about these silversmiths.  I never overclean antique brooches as collectors often want their Victorian or Edwardian jewellery to look as if it has some age! This would clean up bright and shiny with a silver cleaner if you wanted it to look like new!
