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)

  1. Thanks for love everyone!
  2. Thanks Kyratango! I'll try it tomorrow when I am home :)! Nice to hear that you also like the carving. Hunting theam might be what it is. The trees look a bit exotic to me.

  4. Very nice table :) it looks like good qualty.
  5. Sorry for my mobile playing tricks om me ;)
  6. ho2cultcha is absolutely right a fighting fish and a male one. I have had one in my acuarium butiker he passed away after a long fishlife. There are nice photos If you search fighting fish. I love thi...
  7. Thanks Kivatinitz!
  8. Love these!
  9. Nice! What type of jewelry do you wear with this? Or do you let the dress be the gem? It's very nice.
  10. I agree Racer4four :)
  11. Nice bottles :)
  12. I love them, they are beautiful!!
  13. How interesting! Thanks for posting this! I have a great book on similar antique type of jewelry (with filigree wirework, but worn on the clothes) in my country - worn with the traditional clothes. ...
  14. Wonderful hairwork!
  15. Splendid piece!
  16. Very nice indeed!
  17. Beautiful necklace, the backside is so nice as well that you could wear it inside out.
  18. Sorry AnnLander I don't want to say this but I doubt it's amber. It doesn't look like amber. But it is a very beautiful brooch! I agree with Valentino97 about the age. The centerstone looks like auror...
  19. Looks like very nice Mandalas - within buddhism and hinduism. Has a conection to meditation. Read more online.
  20. These are really nice!
  21. Wonderful fish!
  22. Yes, mid-century I would say :)
  23. These are wonderful! I love mexican jewellry! I haven't seen these before. I've searched on line but didn't really find any leads. Will try some more.
  24. Very nice bag!!
  25. Thanks Manikin!
  26. Love it!
  27. I have the same thought as stwilla, it does look very much like a mumintroll but to be a mumin it should have a long tail and this one doesn't. So I think this is not a mumin but maybe inspired by the...
  28. I see we are both convinced we are right :) AnnLander, what ever feels right in your house is ofcourse most important. It's a beautiful tile!
  29. Thanks Newtimes, kyratango and peasejean55!
  30. Very nice!
  31. Wow beautiful!
  32. I think you are doing it well :) for some pieces it's hard to tell.
  33. I don't think you are a novice, some pieces are hard to pin point in style as they can be a bit of more than one style.
  34. Absolutely picture nr 1! Think about the law of gravitation! An acorn has some weight so what makes them point upwards in pic nr 2? In pic nr 1 the center acorn is held up by the position in the middl...
  35. I agree, there is something art deco about them even if there is detail in the painting. Nice.
  36. If this works you can see a modernist necklace and bracelet of mine http://cf.collectorsweekly.com/stories/qBSbYhB0jcAVGJq3EBRY4w.jpg
  37. Peasejean55 this is modernist without a doubt :)
  38. To me it's a bit to much detail in the enamel for modernist. It more artistic and a little bohemian (in a good way). So modern but not modernist in style. But wonderful in it's own way.
  39. Beautiful!!
  40. Beautiful necklace!
  41. The lobsterclaw like clasp tells us this is a recent piece. But the necklace is very nice anyway!
  42. Trey, surfdub66 and Sergey thankyou!

  44. Wonderful!!!
  45. Very cool!
