BelleEpoque

Holland

I 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 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)

  9. impressive collection, it's gold!
  10. very Etruscan revival! Love it!
  11. thanks for the info, Jewels! I will surely keep an eye out for her next time I happen to be in Paris! :)
  12. It is a lovely ring, the silver-gold combination is beautiful! and the work is high quality. It is surely from around 1900, due to the split ring, typical of A&C which wanted to make it evident that t...
  13. lovely work! :)
  14. Hi vetraio, I actually love Rhoda Wager's work! I used to have a pretty little ring by her, but sadly I lost it when our place was broken into a few years ago. I still mourn it! I'm also glad you agre...
  15. Thanks Agram & Elisabethan for the nice comments :)
  16. You are right, Elisabethan! It's hard to find a well-carved cameo from that period. The earlier ones tend to be of better quality, but also are very elaborate. I actually like the simplicity of this o...
  17. wonderful! could it be by Rhoda Wager?
  18. Haha, I'd love to hear more about the cranky French lady with plique jewellery!
  19. I love it indeed, yours is very Celtic! :)
  20. so pretty!
  21. lovely work, you must be very proud! :)
  22. Thank you for looking, blingiton! It also took me a while of experimenting to find out how to wear it! I hope you will post yours as well :)
  23. you're right, great finds!
  24. so delicate! Lovely.
  25. Hi Jewels, thanks for posting these and the earrings! Love them! I do see some plique-a-jour pieces by L&B pop up every now and then on ebay, but rarely as pretty or affordable. The bat pendant is rea...
  26. exquisite!
  27. a match made in heaven! You can get a cape, they are in fashion now :)
  28. truly amazing pieces!
  29. museum quality!!
  30. your collection is like I died and went to A&C jewellery-heaven ;P

  32. wow, I've only seen these pieces in books!
  33. you're collection is insane! Please keep posting!
  34. Hey! I've got a (simpler) variation of the Jessie King necklace! Love all
  35. OMG!! this is incredible
  36. wow, I'm in love with your collection!
  37. the turquoise one does look Gaskin-like. All of them wonderful!
  38. lovely!! very Damstadt indeed :)
  39. merci, kyratango :P
  40. It is racer, thanks!
  41. thanks, Sean for the comment, and the rest for the loves!
  42. incredible!!
  43. sarahoff, I think you might be right. Thanks :)
  44. Lovely! It looks late Victorian to me, strong arts & crafts feel. I think the stone might actually be ruskin pottery. But I wonder what the others think. In any case, excellent acquisition! Good luck ...
  45. sure, Zowie. I hope to see your pieces on CW soon.
  46. Yes, it does, wpj. At first I thought the stone was pink quartz but on closer inspection, I believe (and hope) it is opal.
  47. Hi Zowie, I'm not sure about the pin lenght, but the C clasp does date the brooch to before 1910, after that most claps have a lock. BTW, thanks to all for the loves!
  48. the Israel piece is surely a winner! I could do with a clean, though :)
  49. Hi surf, I have a similar piece that was a gift from a friend. As far as I know it is a reproduction of an ancient Egyptian piece. It is sold in museum shops... I have seen it at the Louvre and Britis...
  50. wow, the size of the opal is impressive, good work! :)
