BelleEpoque

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)

  5. hi, E. Lovely piece. It actually reminds me of the enamel work of David Andersen, it might be Scandinavian after all.
  6. treasures!
  7. 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
  8. Thanks inky, icollectglass and kyratango for the kind comments... and thanks to all for the loves.
  9. I agree this is an early piece, 18th century. You're lucky but you also know where to look!! keep it up :)
  10. perhaps the X (Roman no. 10) refers to a 10th anniversary of something? A commemorative brooch? Very pretty.
  11. wow, all the pieces are wonderful :)
  12. 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, ...
  13. Agram, beautiful pieces, as always. Love that traditional jewellery!
  14. Indeed, Agram. Thanks for the loves to you and all others!
  15. 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...
  16. wonderful!
  17. I love your MM collection! you have a really good eye.
  18. Thanks for loving, and thanks racer4, austrohungaro, and kyratango for the comments. There's more to come! :)
  19. Lovely, I certainly hope there is no end to your collecting :)
  20. Hi Elisabethan, thanks so much for your kind comments!! I know what you mean about that museum feeling, I also have it, perhaps that's why we love collecting :) I started collecting jewellery some 7 y...
  21. 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
  22. I love Bressan enamel, but it is hard to date or attribute to a maker. In any case, it is a beautiful piece!!
  23. 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...
  24. Yes, racer, I suppose it's the same idea but in classy Victorian style :) Thanks to everyone who has loved!
  25. Thanks, Elisabethan, it is indeed a very fine piece! & thank you all for the loves.
  26. what a romantic story, and romantic photos too :)
  27. 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...
  28. 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.
  29. 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-...
  30. Thanks for the comments, kerry & Elisabethan, and the rest for all the loves!
  31. Thanks, Agram!
  32. Thanks so much for the tip, Jewels!! I will try and found out for sure, and I shall inform you of the outcome if I succeed :)
  33. Thank you, Jewels, and everyone who is loving! BTW Happy Easter to all!
  34. to me it does seem like a Jessie King Liberty original, lovely!
  35. a small treasure!
  36. my favourite is the one on pic3, but they are all so pretty!
  37. thanks, racer4, indeed the caged pearls are something special! Thanks to all who have loved :)

  40. great piece... here some info on Mexican silver http://www.925-1000.com/mexican_marks.html#M
  41. I found one in a blog that looks like yours... I hope it helps http://www.jewelsdujour.com/2013/01/rotonde-de-cartier-panther-with-granulation/
  42. impressive collection, it's gold!
  43. very Etruscan revival! Love it!
  44. 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...
  45. lovely work! :)
  46. Thanks Agram & Elisabethan for the nice comments :)
  47. 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...
  48. I love it indeed, yours is very Celtic! :)
  49. so pretty!
