Archive for Scottish silver brooch
I wantd to show you this special brooch – It is available from my website shop at http://www.antiquesavenue.co.uk/ where a kind shopper noticed it and let me know that it was designed and made by a lady called Ola Gorie in the Orkney Islands , Scotland. The brooch has the initials OMG which are her trademark and it also has full silver hallmarks.
I’ve visited Ola Gories website hoping to find out a bit more about the design which I suspect is taken from a similar Scandinavian design I have seen. It appears that she is not currently selling a piece of jewellery in this design.
This brooch appears to have two birds ( Doves or Love Birds?) sitting in a tree eating small fruit such as cherries. Do you know the tradidiotnal design this is based on? Please do get in touch I would love to know.
