I pI started collecting jewellery from the Belle Epoque in 2007. Since then my collection has been growing bit by bit and now also includes some art and home items. I particularly like the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, and Secessionist styles, but also have a couple of early Art Deco pieces. I'm always on the look for designs from Liberty's, the Wiener Werkstätte, and iconic period items. (Read more)

  13. Thanks for your kind comment, Anne. I'm sure with patience you will be able to find some beautiful pieces for you and your daughter to enjoy, and I hope you'll share them in CW.
  14. By the way, are any of your pieces signed? Do you know how her work can be identified and distinguished from others such as Nossiter and Dunlop? ;)
  15. Wow, thanks Jewels1900!! I see what you mean, the design and scrollwork are certainly very similar to the one I posted. The biggest difference I can see is that your pendants and necklaces all have be...
  16. Thanks kiwipaul for the comment. The size is big: 5cm long by 5.5c, across, and 8cm from the connector piece. Jewels1900, I thought that Sandheim's pieces were a bit more colorful and ornate, perhaps ...
  17. And thanks to everyone else for the love!
  18. Thanks for the suggestion, Jewels1900!! I hadn't thought of Amy Saindheim as a possibility... that would mean though that it's more like 1920s, right? I'd love to see your amber pendant, by the way.
  19. Wow, what a treasure! Love all Hoffmann!
  20. Like peacock's tail! Lovely!
  21. Medieval revival... I love it.
  22. spectacular, what a wonderful collection.
  23. Congratulations on your new acquisition. I would say it is a Liberty design, I have a very similar necklace marked L and Co, that I hope to post soon, and a ring that has almost the exact same leafs w...
  24. this green version is also beautiful, many thanks for the tip.
  25. WHH stands for William Hair Haseler, who manufactured a lot of designs for Liberty. I'ts a wonderful pendant.
  26. Thanks, kyratango!! I'd never seen one with a mother of pearl at the centre. Very pretty!!
  27. Thanks Agram! I hope to visit the museum soon, and now I know I cannot miss the jewellery section. Wonderful pieces.
  28. Hi Elisabethan, thanks so much for your interest and comments. I have to say that the brooch does remind me of some early GJensen pieces, that's why I initially thought it could be Scandinavian. Howev...
  29. Big Knox fan! Beautiful work.
  30. you have a treasure there! thanks for sharing :)
  31. I'm sure the eagle mark stands for silver, very pretty!
  32. Thanks for the loves! Jewels, also thanks so much for the info and tip. Kyra... Jewels means a nearly identical piece that you can find on Tadema's archive file of Jugendstil necklaces... could may we...
  33. Thanks, jensen & Jewels for the input. I'm also inclined to think it's German, but the marks throw me off a bit. I suppose it could also be Austrian. In any case, it's really pretty. Thanks also to al...
  34. I like the original mother of pearl, but the opal does enhance the piece, well thought!
  35. simply wow!
  36. wonderful piece, perhaps Austro-Hungarian?
  37. spectacular!! thanks for showing.
  38. schaverien, thanks for the info. Even if the makers remain a mystery, it is still a beautiful period enamel piece, and the hallmark does read S&E.
  39. Thank you, Elisabethan for the link, there is indeed a resemblance. Thanks nutsabotas6 and shereurpassion for your comments. And everyone for the loves. Agram.m, I'm always interested in Scheid pendan...
