Antique Arts & Crafts Sterling Silver Colorfully Enameled Jabot Pin Bernard Instone

Bernard Instone was heavily influenced by the English Arts and Crafts movement. By the tender age of 12 he was already excelling at Art and Design and received awards and scholarships to several art schools, including the Birmingham School of Jewellery where he studied under Arthur Gaskin, who did amazing work for the retailer Liberty & Company of London.

Instone was known not to sign his works, but I’m fairly certain that this jabot was made by him in about 1930. This sterling silver piece has wonderfully bright, almost psychedelic enamel panels on each end, each capped by a triple-lobed leaf. The pin is 121 mm (5.75 inches) long, and 13.5 mm wide at the widest point, it weighs 15.3 grams. It is marked ‘sterling silver’ on the reverse.

Add a jab of color to any outfit or put it through your hat, you can’t go wrong with the funky, beautiful Jabot!
