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)

  1. Thanks Agram! I hope to visit the museum soon, and now I know I cannot miss the jewellery section. Wonderful pieces.
  2. 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...
  3. Big Knox fan! Beautiful work.
  4. you have a treasure there! thanks for sharing :)
  5. I'm sure the eagle mark stands for silver, very pretty!
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. I like the original mother of pearl, but the opal does enhance the piece, well thought!
  9. simply wow!
  10. wonderful piece, perhaps Austro-Hungarian?
  11. spectacular!! thanks for showing.
  12. 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.
  13. 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...

  23. hi, E. Lovely piece. It actually reminds me of the enamel work of David Andersen, it might be Scandinavian after all.
  24. treasures!
  25. Thanks to all for the loves, and to agram, racer4 and kyratango for their comments. Agram, I have mostly found them on ebay... I suppose I have developed a 'nose' for them :P
  26. Thanks inky, icollectglass and kyratango for the kind comments... and thanks to all for the loves.
  27. I agree this is an early piece, 18th century. You're lucky but you also know where to look!! keep it up :)
  28. perhaps the X (Roman no. 10) refers to a 10th anniversary of something? A commemorative brooch? Very pretty.
  29. wow, all the pieces are wonderful :)
  30. Hi Agram, lovely chain. About the marks, the only thing I can think of is the Pforzheim firm of Rodi & Wienenberger whose logo was an anchor, although almost always with RW at the sides. In any case, ...
  31. Agram, beautiful pieces, as always. Love that traditional jewellery!
  32. Indeed, Agram. Thanks for the loves to you and all others!
  33. Hi Agram, I have become a collector of GAS bracelets without even noticing. It all started with one I loved very much and lost when they broke into our house. Then my boyfriend gave me one as a presen...
  34. wonderful!
  35. I love your MM collection! you have a really good eye.

  39. I have this pendant... but I think it's more recent than your brooch http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/98718-vintage-french-blue-bresse-enamel-on-sil
  40. I love Bressan enamel, but it is hard to date or attribute to a maker. In any case, it is a beautiful piece!!
  41. I don't know how I missed your post, but thanks for pointing it out. This indeed is an earlier example, in wonderful historismus, the quality is amazing! I think the M&S pieces are actually rarer than...
  42. Yes, racer, I suppose it's the same idea but in classy Victorian style :) Thanks to everyone who has loved!
  43. Thanks, Elisabethan, it is indeed a very fine piece! & thank you all for the loves.
  44. what a romantic story, and romantic photos too :)
  45. Jewels, thanks so much for the input. You have convinced me that the guard is more Skonvirke than Jugendstil, so that is set, I will edit the title accordingly :) I hope to see more of your own enviab...
  46. Hi Elisabethan, I said in my other post that I think the ring may be 40s or 50s, I'm glad to see tha Valentino thinks the same. 835 is indeed typically German. Hope someone can help with the mark.
  47. Thanks Sean, and everyone the rest for the loves! Jewels, you are right, it might be Scandinavian but I bought it in Germany, so I just assumed. Elisabethan, I think this couldn't be older thatn 1910-...
