From all the searching all I can tell is it pre-dates 1932 and could be as old as 1886..not been able to find a fish hallmark like that...

15 carat gold was a standard between 1854 and 1931

Hi Jimmy.mitch,

I found a brooch of a similar style with the three bars with balls on the ends that may have been made by the same company.

1570539816_brooch2.jpg

This one may be more recent than your one, being 9ct gold, but it's the design that makes me think it's the same makers.
I couldn't find the fish hallmark to prove it's theirs though.

The company is called S. Schlank & Co. from Adelaide. Salis Schlank may have possibly been the designer/maker, and may have been when he was at P. Falk & Co, before it changed to S. Schlank & Co.

See attached link for more information about him.

Cheers,
