  1. Hi Paul. I have a few of these types of vases but I've never figured out who made them.
  2. Oh yes Paul. Those tiles are lovely. I've always loved tiles from the arts & crafts + nouveau movement. I used to buy them regularly but like so many things I don't seem to come across them much an...
  3. Hi Yearbyyear, you've got an arts & crafts ring here. I know what you mean about brooch conversions, I've seen necklaces & rings converted from broached in this shape. But you can see from the li...
  4. Hi Kyra. Nice job as always. I don't think Fenton made this type of jewel. Also, even though they didn't mark everything with the JF makers mark, I think they did assay all their silver so it all h...
  5. That's interesting about the Bex copies. I have a swallow brooch in pink that was sold to me as an antique. I wonder if it's an original Bex or a copy. It has rhinestones in it. I always thought...
  6. I agree with Cogito. I think this is European; german or dutch. The red enamel is an unusual colour and in good condition. Nice find.
  7. Awesome collection of galleons Paul. I have a bit of a soft spot for them as well. I've seen that middle tile attributed to Voysey as well. I've got a few tile/pilkingtons books. Next time I have ...
  8. Sorry racer4four, I've been offline. Yes, water opals are what we Aussies refer to as milk opals! And these ones are likely to have come from Australia. You find them in German jewellery of this pe...
  9. Sorry Valentino, I've been offline for a while. The turquoise is 28 cms, the fire opal is 22 cms & the monotone is 22cms. The pendant part of the moonstone is 4.5 cms from drop to top.
  10. There's nothing wrong with an old bat! Celebrate your battiness I say! Valentino, the pink bat is 5cms wide and purple bat is 5.2cms wide (but is much bigger). Both came without chains so I wear ...
  11. Ahh Kyra, you know I can't be bothered with spelling! I'm too lazy.
  12. Thank you MelanieJ. Kyra, it wouldn't be the first time I've bought arts & crafts described as native american. But this one is definitively English arts & crafts.
  13. Ohh, nice Kyra. I look forward to seeing it.
  14. I have a small buckle with frogs carrying another frog in a divan chair. I used to have a fan brooch like Jean's and also a matching pair of earrings. I swapped the earrings for a Guild of Handicraf...
  15. No worries.
  16. Thank you Katerhine.

  18. Completely out of my usual style but I do love these!
  19. Very pretty pendant Jean. I'm sorry I can't help you with an attribution this time.
  20. Hi Bella, these are sometimes marked on the back of the clasp, sometimes not. Marks range for Sterling, S & Co and sometimes a date hallmark. That yours is unsigned is pretty standard. Hope that he...
  21. This is by Shipton & Co. I posted some similar bracelets and other Shipton items a little while ago. You can still find the photos. They make for great wearing. It's a shame about the clasp, I b...
  22. Hi Lisa. My understand is that 'silver' should be 925 (which is sterling silver). Everything else should be white metal. But having a jewel marked silver is not the same as having it tested via an ...
  23. I make up for Kyra's disinterest in horn bugs!
  24. Woo Hoo! Love a bit of George Hunt.
  25. Hi Jean. The blue john bracelet is Shipton. If you have a look at the oval sections, you'll see they are the same as my Shiptons earrings above. The square sections are the same as the bracelets ab...
  26. Jean, here's a design I've not seen before. It has blue john in it. I have a matching blue john ring - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BERNARD-INSTONE-BRACELET-MARKED-SILVER-WITH-4-AMETHYST-OR-BLUE-JOHN-S...
  27. Looks lovely on you Paul.
  28. No worries. Happy to share.
  29. PS, so lovely to be sharing so much great arts & crafts.
  30. I agree, American. On the cusp of nouveau & arts & crafts. Really very fine work. It's amazing to think someone would make this but not mark it.
  31. Hi Jean. This is a cracker! The chain is a personal matter but I think it's too light. Sandheim was known to use recycled french guard chains which are much heavier and make the jewels more substan...
  32. You've been busy Jean. I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
  33. No worries Jean. Hopefully you'll find some lovely treasures.
  34. Just uploaded some new images with pearl dangle.
  35. Hi Jean. I'm not sure about the age of your ring. They seem to have made them for decades. I've posted some examples of Shiptons and Instone from my collection for you to have a look at.
  36. Hi Jean, does your Saindheim have a big rock crystal in it?
  37. Arts & Crafts jewels can be very chunky, particularly the inter-war pieces and/or the pieces made for ecclesiastical purposes.
  38. Hi Blboi, this peice is arts & crafts and it's a bit of a cracker. I have no idea who made it or even if it's english or american. Except the chain maybe recycled from an old french guard chain. I ...
  39. Hi Vintagefran, the thing is a blob of glass, like a bullseye.
  40. Hi Jean, I don't know much about Shipton & Co except I think they were making this type of jewellery up until to 60's or so. I have a ring with blue john in it, I think this one is later but the sett...
  41. Hi Lisa. I'm not in the UK so I don't know how often the lamps come up for sale. One thing about buying Benson is that you need to buy it unknown, otherwise its very expensive. I don't own lamp mys...
  42. Hi Lisa, It's in my bookcase so I'll get it out tomorrow and measure it. It's big though. I always find it amazing that these guys have survived.
  43. Hi Lisa, I think you are right. I've said I think the shade on the right is English but actually, I think it's continental. The 'blobs' (very technical term!) around the outside are a bit rough, not...
  44. Hi Jean. I think I've mentioned before that I'm pretty confident that the ring is by Shipton & Co and I'm not sure if they had a link with Instone or not. You can buy whole suites of this jeweller...
  45. Hi Paul. I'm not really sure about these. At first glance I would have thought they were later than the Gaskins. Do you have the Gaskin catalogue? If not, I'll get it out when I have a moment an...
  46. Krya, I got a new jewellery case a few weeks ago. I'm like a kid in the candy store all grouping it together and making it just right. I'm picking up a few repairs tomorrow so I get to play some more.
  47. Not to worry Paul. It took me a while to really move into jewellery as well. I was collecting arts & crafts objects but still buying victorian jewellery. Goodness knows what I passed up. I have be...
  48. Super, thanks so much Paul. Much appreciated. The very sad story is that I was actually offered it before it appeared for sale online but there were too many options for me to choose from and I hu...
  49. BTW Belle, my jeweller has some arts & crafts chains made up for me. One of these, I think, will make this pendant look much better. Next time he travels, he's going to see if he can get some Libe...
