Antique Australian brooch by Willis of a boomerang and a swan

Early Australian jewellery is becoming so sought after, and here is a gorgeous antique brooch made by the early Australian jewellery company, Willis.

Made in the early 1900's, it was made in 9 carat rose and yellow gold and has a boomerang with a swan sitting above. Finding Australian brooches with swans would have to be the hardest design to find, and this one in yellow gold is so beautiful.

With the brooch measuring 38.4mm across by 20.5mm, there is no doubt that this brooch will always be admired every time that it is worn.

Antique Australian brooch by Willis of a boomerang and a swan

Antique Australian brooch by Willis of a boomerang and a swan made in the early 1900's.

This antique brooch  was made in 9 carat rose and yellow gold by the early Australian company Willis and Sons.

Who were Willis and Sons?

A brief history about Willis and Sons:

Willis and Sons were first established in 1858 by Richard and Thomas Willis, who were jewellery importers and wholesalers. They imported clocks, silver and electro-plated pieces as well making a name for themselves as a leading manufacturer of jewellery. There jewellery often reflected the native Australian flora and fauna with brooches often being in the form of a boomerang often with an Australian animal for example. By the turn of the century the firm had become Australia's leading gold jewellery manufacturer and after 1931 continued just as importers after closing the manufacturing side of the business down.
