Description

Gorgeous vintage Hobe brooch, in excellent condition, 3 inches long, 1 1/2 inches wide.. Clasp works perfectly. Absolutely gorgeous. Not much more needs to be said. The pictures say it all. Stunning. perfect for a Bride, to close a stole or on a sash..

A little info on the fascinating Hobe-
When costume-jewelry collectors think of Hobé, they picture the tasselled and beaded necklaces made by Jacques’ son, William, who established an American offshoot of the company in 1927. That put Hobé at the beginning of the American costume-jewelry boom between the two world wars.

In fact, some scholars believe that Hobé actually had a hand in the phrase “costume jewelry” itself. After the younger Hobé landed in New York, but before he started his company, one of the his first assignments was to make costumes and jewelry for the "Ziegfeld Follies." According to some historians, Florenz Ziegfeld described the jewelry that accompanied Hobé’s costumes as costume jewelry.

Hobé’s showbiz origins served the company well. By the 1940s and ’50s, Hollywood stars such as Bette Davis and Ava Gardner were wearing Hobé.

This brooch will be beautifully gift boxed and shipped quickly.
