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. Newtimes, please share your cabinet, I would love to see it!! and I'm sure others would too :)
  2. Thanx for all the loves and comments :)
  3. Hi, it would help to have more pics to estimate the age, but here's a link to a similar ring in my collection, I hope it helps:
  4. Thanks to all the 'lovers'. Kyra, I do understand your concern... but as you said, for what I paid I wouldn't mind that much if it were a reproduction, the design is still lovely. Nonetheless I do th...
  5. How can anyone not love A. Knox!!
  6. Attribution is great, but the brooch is lovely by itself, too!
  7. Thanks for the comment, davyd :)
  8. The necklace does seem Gaskin... Not sure about the ring, but both are lovely!
  9. Thank you, kyra & jean for your comments, I'm happy you agree the pendant is lovely despite its lack of age :) Thanks also to all who sent their love.
  10. incredible! Agram will love these ;)
  11. the black and white pic really doesn't make any justice to this wonderful piece, I can only imagine how it looks in real life!! :)
  12. eternal beauty!
  13. striking!
  14. The collection keeps growing!! ;)
  15. The maker is hard to identify without marks, but they absolutely look A&C. Lovely rings!
  16. Dreamy!! <3
  17. A spectacular piece, congrats! And thanks for sharing! :)
  18. Hi Kyra, I also said Liberty since your first post... Also Liberty pieces often have a number on the back... It is so pretty.
  19. Score! Beautiful!
  20. Hi Bluboi, thanx for your interest, it's 5 x 3.5 cm. I love the intense red of the coral too :)
  21. Glorious!
  22. True, I see a resemblance!! :)
  23. Hi kyra, I couldn't decide whether it was a floral or marine motif, but I think you're right, it's seaweed!! thanks ;-) and thanks to Jensen & Jean for loving, too.
  24. pretty piece of Mexican silver (MEX), great find! goed gedaan :)
  25. Amazing!
  26. So special!
  27. Liberty?
  28. Beautiful cameo, Kyra!
  29. Beautiful! Any marks?
  30. Thanks, kyra! You're right, scarabs were often of ceramic but this tiny one is of a carved soft stone. I suppose that makes it more special!! Thanks also for loving, aghcollect and Sean :)
  31. To be honest both pieces seem nouveau to me... Yours is clearly Egyptian revival... Perhaps a custom mourning piece? In any case, beautiful!
  32. What a beautiful bargain!!
  33. What is it made of? It's so interesting!
  34. lovely! the blue is beautiful
  35. congratulations on this one, it's beautiful!
  36. I would have thought Austro-Hungarian, but Agram is right in that the back looks unusual. Also the 800 mark points towards Germany. In any case, beautiful find!
  37. Great addition to your lovely collection!
  38. You are building a great Instone collection!
  39. This is so beautiful!!
  40. Beautiful and so elegant!!
  41. Amazing!
  42. Interesting overlap of Murrle Bennett and Fahrner... And lovely pendant :)
  43. Hmmmm, lovely!
  44. Thanx, Jean, bluboi, Zowie and kyra for your reactions... And the rest for their loves and likes!
  45. so pretty! quality piece!
  46. Thanks also for the clarification... I did see that wonderful enamel piece and figured it must have been by someone important, given the sum it reached. I hope it will be loved by its new owner.
  47. nice MB set, I'd never seen one with the earpieces. Thanks for posting.
  48. Hi! I'm not sure I can help... But I agree with oldandsilly in that the 835 mark suggests the piece is older or Asian perhaps. Or also, as Agram said, maybe it started life as something else, like a d...
  49. Hi Scott, the shape and inscription are indicative of age. Here a very good resource on early Islamic jewellery:
  50. Thanx, kyra and blunderbuss, and everyone else!
