  1. Hi Orvit. I had a quick look in the Arwas book & it isn't there (or similar). I'm pretty sure this is a design I've not seen before but it has many design elements of Kind & once you see a bit of it...
  2. So, so German. I have the von Hause book on my lap at the moment (its the best reference on German art jewellery circa 1900) and it could come right out of it.
  3. Mmmm. Jessie M King. I've not seen this design before but it feels so right. See if you can get your hands on the Art Nouveau book by Victor Awas. For some reason I think you might find something ...
  4. My money is on Franz Bores for this one rather than Kleeman. Like Kleeman, a lot of his jewellery was enamelled in this cobalt blue. The van Hase book, Schmuck in Deutschland und Osterreich has ...
  5. Could be German (roses) or Scandinavian. Defiantly not Haseler - completely different aesthetic (and not the right mark as you point out).
  6. I'd say this is German. It has that cobalt blue enamel that was popular in Germany during this period. Not so much Kleeman, but more after Kleeman. Do you have the plique book? It has a good rep...
  7. I've seen marks on the ring for the clip on chains but nowhere else. Interestingly I've just bought a Farhner necklace (in the last 10 minutes) and it didn't say it was signed (wasn't attributed)...
  8. Thanks to google translate ... Peter Paul Pfeiffer The jewelry designer and sculptor Peter Paul Pfeiffer moved first to the colony. Peter Paul Pfeiffer was born in 1879 in Stockach. His artisti...
  9. These are interesting in relation to the other discussion we've been having about the Farhner pieces you've posted because I have a pendant in this style that's unmarked. I've never really been sur...
  10. That is a tantalisingly annoying video. We need to see more of Peggy's collection! And yes that Hunt piece is a cracker, love the colours, it's a miniature work of art. I thought I posted yeste...
  11. Yok, so here's my thinking on these Haussler enamels. You know Fahrner made several ranges of jewellery. There were the studio pieces which were exhibited at at the Salons and Design Fairs. Then ...
  12. Also, hello Melbourne!
  13. These are fab. Thanks so much for sharing.
  14. Hi fellow enamel lover! Welcome to CW. I saw your ring when it was for sale. An unusual place for find an Australian Arts & Crafts piece but it just goes to show you can find treasure in the most...
  15. Hi Kyra, I saw this when it was first posted & I'm not really sure. It's hard to tell what the date is, the pin may be a replacement, it's hard to tell. Could be German, could be Scandinavian, c...
  16. I have a tile like this in my collection. It's a design by Voysey and made by Pilkingtons circa 1900. http://www.fotolibra.com/gallery/1120258/voysey-art-nouveau-tile-panel-repeating/ I'd say...
  17. The heart shaped garnet piece looks like a clasp from a bracelet. If you google Scottish victorian bracelets you should find some examples of bracelets with similar lockets. (The Scottish style is...
  18. Woo Hoo! More circa 1900 jewels. I've also been collecting but not posting as much. Lovely brooch, what makes you think its Scottish?
  19. I'd say German. Between 1900 & 1920. That blue enamel is very common on German jewellery produced during this time. Usually more geometric in design than yours. Search jugendstil blue enamel & yo...
  20. Between 1900 & 1920's. American slag glass. May have belonged to a larger chandelier. Looks for a maker or design number cast into the metalwork.
  21. Is it mother of pearl or plastic? Looks very similar to Lea Stein designs.
  22. PS, it's not necessarily a morning locket. There was a whole language of hair. You could have your hair professionally made up into a variety of styles & pieces or ladies could buy guides on how to ...
  23. The buckle on Victorian jewellery (rings, brooches, lockets etc) is actually a garter. Victoria was the head of the Order of the Garter and like she started so many jewellery fashions (Scottish, Jet ...
  24. I think it's a compact. It seems to have a space for powder, a mirror & possibly a space for a small lipstick?
  25. PS, the stone is calchedony.
  26. Fresh mango always goes down quickly. I'll squeeze in the rest of the info while he's feeding himself egg & toast. So the quality, style (medieval), use of bead & rope work & mixed metals (while ...
  27. Hi Sham. That's a cracker of a brooch you've got there. Defiantly Arts & Crafts and good quality. Worth noting, though, is that the pin has been added after the brooch was made which means it mig...
  28. You're brooch is in the style of a sash pin. I think it's likely to be base metal with gilt or gold tone. The citrine coloured stone is glass. They were very popular in America. Not so much in o...
  29. Hi Jean. I spied this one too. It's defiantly a Nossitor piece. I've seen them with this fan-like structure. I think is was one of a pair of clips.
  30. Thanks for the info.
  31. Hi, your brooch is Norwegian and by a designer call Maruis Hammer circa 1900. The design is based on a Norwegian marriage brooch.
  32. This pin is lovely. Does it have any makers marks on the back?
  33. Nice one Kyra. Never seen a Lily before.
  34. Hi Gina, your hutch dates from the 20's. It has some elements of Arts & Crafts (hinges, shape & a-semmitry), also some Edwardian (spindles) and the geometric diamonds & carving above them are typical...
  35. I think most Shakudo that was made for export ware was made circa 1870 - 1890. The Samuri as a class were banned in 1871 which co-incided with the western interest in Asian, particularly Japanese, ae...
  36. This is a cracker Jean.
  37. Hi Jean, I thought you might have bought this. I had a little punt myself but hubby was in the UK so I'd already spent more than I have! I think it's Mumfords for sure.
  38. Interesting, I've never seen a plique piece like this with Egyptian marks. It's so like the earlier German pieces style wise but I guess the enamel colours are quite different.
  39. That is a cracker story.
  40. By the 30's or 40's arts & crafts/mission was way out of fashion. And I think this is an original piece, not a modern reproduction. Quater sawn oak vas very popular, the majority of arts & craft f...
  41. Sorry Kyra. Don't think this is a Varley one.
  42. Arts & Crafts, mission style. Circa 1910.
  43. 1920's, Egyptian revival. It's possible the hieroglyphics don't say anything but are just decoration. These come in silver & silver gilt. I'm not sure what the red is, never seen this before. ...
  44. Same, same. Also explains why Z&W always looks similar to AH but not quite. Who knows why I know that!
  45. You need an Asian collectables expert who may be able to read the mark & possibly identify a maker. They may also be able to tell you what purpose this piece was made for & whether it was always mean...
  46. Yep, mark may have been fittings. Screw backs is consistent with Z & W. Drop in on one of Jean's posts & get her to take a look. I'm sure she posted something about Z & W not so long ago. Austro...
  47. https://www.rubylane.com/item/591985-001714/English-Arts-Crafts-Silver-Citrine-Garnet scroll down ... http://www.paisleys.mahoonas.co.za/index.htm Zoltan & White usually mark their stuff though...
  48. Zoltan & White. Thats why they look AH but not quite. Also explains hearts. Do a Google search & see what you can find.
  49. Hi Snod. Yours is an unusual brooch because it's signed. Pieces made for export were not usually signed like yours. It's possible this started it's life as something made for the Japanese market & ...
  50. Hi Tassie, I think these are Austro Hungarian. The hearts are unusual though.
