  1. Thank you all! I have more in other colors, but no room for photos. I was offered a group in purple! Never seen any in that color before, but couldn't afford them....
  2. Yep, these are all Haskell pieces from the WWII period, made when metal parts and glass beads were mostly unavailable.. The one with the round disks and center beads is Bakelite. Later, you will fin...
  3. Well, the one book I have on WMF wasn't any help. Sorry!
  4. The literature mostly covers the Kristall beads being coated and is vague regarding the Ikora beads In fact, in going back through some references, I saw Myra Kristall and Ikora cited in a way in wh...
  5. Hi peasejean. Love your Myra beads. You are correct -- these are quite uncommon! I have collected a number of versions of these and done some research on their history, so hopefully this will he...
  6. Kyra, do you know anything about Charles Thomae? Beautiful enameling!
  7. Here is a bracelet clasp with chrysoberyls (or chrysolite): http://photos.imageevent.com/bluboi/fine/small/Georgian%20pink%20topaz%20bracelet%20clasp3.jpg
  8. Thank you all for your "loves" and comments.
  9. Beautiful set! Are the pale green stones chrysoberyls?
  10. What is the size of this brooch? It is amazing!
  11. Lovely ring! I agree on the Amazonite -- I have a Fahrner in that exact color. What is the size of the top of the ring?
  12. So interesting, Kyra! I have followed some of your other workmanship and your results are quite good! I am a total klutz when it come to repairs! Yes, this lariat is really over-the-top and to ...
  13. I have two very special jewelry dealers (one in the US and one in London) who keep an eye out for me, as they know what I collect. One of them is a history major as am I, and we are well-aligned in o...
  14. Beautiful, flowing piece. Just wonderful! What a great find and so well researched!
  15. I really like this bug! You have some wonderful pieces, Kyra, but this one is special! It was interesting to see the necklace on 1st Dibs -- I wonder if yours was part of another larger piece of jew...
  16. My mom and I spent a month in New Zealand -- what a wonderful country! The people are so nice to strangers. I even found some very nice Victorian jewelry! We were lucky to see Christchurch before t...
  17. Thanks for the Australian history! In the US, the earliest states allowing women to vote were mostly in the West (many of them were territories) and all of the suffrage laws had to be re-approved whe...
  18. I like your set of articles on pearls, especially the way you divided them up into manageable and absorbable segments. Your comments on repairing hit home! I have a lovely Giuliani pendant and one o...
  19. You have wonderful Arts & Crafts pieces and all so well researched! My favorites are the opals! I have a few myself, so will have to get them posted. I have a wonderful Walton & Co opal necklace, b...
  20. What an amazing find, and more splendid, what amazing research you have done! Bravo! I love the history of this old stuff, and am saddened by how few pieces I own where there is any information. Wh...
  21. Provenance: Princess Amelia's brother, Ernest Augustus (King of Hanover from 1837-1851) was an art lover and, among his collection of paintings, sculpture, etc., had a large and important collection o...
  22. Berlin Iron is wonderful and its delicacy and workmanship cannot be appreciated until you hold it in your hands! And yes, because of its rarity, it gets ever more expensive! Both it and Silesian Wir...
  23. Acrostic jewelry will read from left to right, so depending on how the pin is placed, that would be the order of the initials. The most common acrostic sayings are "adore,""dearest" and "regard." He...
  24. This box is terrific! Never seen one before. I love Berlin Iron and have a number of pieces. A very good reference source covering the subject quite thoroughly is "Cast Iron from Central Europe, 18...
  25. Thanks everyone for your comments. The construction of this bracelet is beautiful -- the feel of it, the way everything fits is surely the mark of a very fine jeweler. I wish I knew "anything" abou...
  26. Wonderful cameo with exceptional carving. Love the dolphins!
  27. Love the Queen Mary Stuart crystal slide! This one is amazing and so elaborate! I collect these early pieces and have one also -- it is unusual as the back of the slide is a representation of the Tu...
  28. Great ring and terrific history on it. I love it when research has been done. You are very lucky to own this!
