Hobe' Sterling Butterfly Pin in excellent condition. Stamped Hobe STERLING Design Pat'd on the back. Measures 1-3/4" x 1".
Still with shaking fingers...I'm letting go of yet another of my top pieces. Also an earlier piece, this pin has a hand etched marking on the back of 130/14...and Hobe Sterling and Design Pat'd. The hallmark was first used Jan. 1926 as the piece above. Were there only 130 of these made? This piece measures aprrox. 2-3/4" in diameter...and there is a faceted red stone set in the center. Gorgeous pin...
Yet another striking Hobe', though this Floral Spray has no stones. Very heavy in weight, and truly a gorgeous piece of design work. Marked with Hobe in a Triangle [1933-1957] and measures 3-1/2" x 2-1/2". Matching pierced earrings... backs of the earrings are screw-on's. Earrings are not marked.
PS055 Price: $255.00
This Hobe' Sterling Floral pin is marked Hobe' Sterling and Design Pat'd. Seems to have a double Hobe stamp...one which is lighter and offset from the other. Lighter than the others, this pin is so typical of the Hobe' design. The floral spray is tied together with a bow and this measures 4" x 2-1/4".
PS056 Price: $145.00
Dated on the back...1965. So this baby is 32 years old...and still sparkles like NEW! Trust me, this picture doesn't even come close to representing the beauty of this piece. Mint condition, this pin has hand set marquis all around a pave' circle of clear rhinestones. If you love Hobe' you will LOVE this one! It measures 2-1/2" in diameter in a silver tone setting.

Nice one from the 60's! Center of medallion has an amber colored glass which is set in gold metal. White glass beads enhance the design. Dangles from a 12" chain.
