The game of identification is never ending in this business and truly is the fun part. Well, in all honesty its one of the fun parts! Having recently acquired a wonderful group of estate jewelry from a woman who did extensive traveling, I am all over the silver resource sites for ID help.
This amazing pin has the hallmark S&Co where the o is raised and has a line under it. I've attributed it to Sydney & Co.
This indicates sterling silver and Birmingham - but the form of the T suggests an earlier time than the style of the pin. Hmm?
And here is my big mystery mark this week. Etched into the back I can barely make out : F I N N . There appears to be a small shield under it. Over to the right a little bit looks to be Made in Norw... The last letters are not there.
Even though small in size - I have to say this small brooch totally intrigues me.
