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)

  9. 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.
  10. nice MB set, I'd never seen one with the earpieces. Thanks for posting.
  11. 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...
  12. Hi Scott, the shape and inscription are indicative of age. Here a very good resource on early Islamic jewellery: https://books.google.nl/books?id=5c9NoOBf2Q4C&printsec=frontcover&hl=nl#v=onepage&q&f=f...

  25. looks like silver, good luck!
  26. beautiful!
  27. Hey Kyra, glad I could help :) Böhm did wonderful enamel work, and his pieces were very much revivalist. So it's possible that yours is trying to immitate an older style, like the one on the link. I...
  28. It certainly has an A&C feel, lovely!
  29. Could the mark be HB, for Hermann Boehm?

  37. Fantastic!!
  38. Hi cogito, thanks for your input. I indeed bought it as is. It might have come from Prutscher's 'Nachlass' or, as you say, from the WW archives. Perhaps it would be worth checking with an expert to le...
  39. Thanx Sean, kyra and Vetraio! And all who have loved it!

  44. I get an Egyptian revival vibe, 1920s? Really pretty!!
  45. kyra, thanks for your comment. Actually the ring is very sturdy. I think it would take more than a clap to break it, fortunately. It is very heavy, too, but looks lovely.
  46. So chic!
  47. Spectacular!!
  48. Love the enamel work!
  49. I'd indeed be worth to take to an expert for valuation and repair. Good luck!
