Napier Floral Brooch

Napier Floral Brooches

At The Napier Book, we love to collect Napier floral brooches. The company produced dozens of floral designs throughout its history. This one has lovely movement to it. It was all hand-manipulated and no two pieces are the same. The piece is marked with both the copyright mark and the Napier mark. The company used the style of this particular copyright mark in the late 1950s to early 1960s. Not all items made during this time had a copyright mark. However, we tend to see pieces promoted in advertisements to have the copyright mark.
