Scandinavia

For as long as I can remember I have been interested in in old things and things that carry a history. I still remember when I, as a young child, saved some old bookFor as long as I can remember I have been interested in in old things and things that carry a history. I still remember when I, as a young child, saved some old books from being thrown away after my grandparents had died and the house was being sold. I kept the books hidden and safe, as my secret treasure, for meny years. Today I´m glad I was so determined, the oldest book is from 1748. At the age of 7 I already had a strong feeling that old things needs to be treated with respect. I guess it all started there, the interest in finding and caring for old or special things. The collector soul in me was born. Recently I found a growing interest in silver jewelry. I tought I was drawn to simple elegant designs but I´m learning more about my taste everyday. I´m humble about this whole thing as I find it hard to call myself a collector, I just recently realized I have this condition. I don´t know a lot, but I do know what I like and I also like research. I´m looking forward to share and to read about other peoples pieces and collections. (Read more)

  17. Thankyou lentilka that nice to hear. Thankyou! Davyd thankyou! I don't know if it is, I thought it was marks after the pin. But you're right it could be because it doesn't match the pin. I can't...

  19. Is it for shotglasses? Could it have been a centerpiece for the table with candles or small glasscups for serving something?
  20. Wow! I would guess czech. Looks just like their jewelry. Look at costume jewelry/ czech here on CW and compare. I think you will see similarities.
  21. Sorry, can't stop my brainstorm :) http://www.srs.at/
  22. Search "coin jewelry" and "love token" and you will see more coin jewelry. But I don't think your bracelet fall under the category of love token. I think yours was made as a tourist memory piece or ma...

  24. Very interesting and unique. I bet those are austrian Lipizzaner horses. Coin jewelry has been popular in several parts of the world. I have a Coin brooch from 1800's posted in my collection. I thin...
  25. I love this aswell. Grew up with them. They look wonderful in winter, like glowing ice candles. Greetings from Scandinavia here :)
  26. Yes thankyou, lets hope so. There is no signature that I can see, I have looked again. It's a small brooch only 3 x 3,5 cm. The cameo face stands out 1,8 cm from the base of the brooch and 1 cm fro...
  27. It was a great place with a nice antique dealer. His main interest wasn't jewelry but other things like glass, books etc and that was great for the price....

  29. I love this piece! Everything about it appeals to me, the shape the pattern and color. It's very special.
  30. Very nice ring, I really like the leaves and the color of the stone. Are you positive it's a stone and not artglass? It's very nice either way.
