Antique Australian brooch by Willis of a boomerang and a swan

This antique brooch of a swan on top of a boomerang was made in 9 carat rose and yellow gold by the early Australian company Willis.

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.
