  1. You've got me curious about the amber Bluboi. Over the next few weeks I'm going to check in with a few people who know lots more than me & I'll let you know what they say.
  2. Here are the red amber pieces for reference. http://www.lawsons.com.au/asp/fullCatalogue.asp?salelot=3668+++++++2+&refno=10130764&saletype= http://www.powerhousemuseum.com/collection/database/?i...
  3. Hi Bluboi, you know it's the design I go after; not so hot on stones. But I'm sure there is genuine red amber. It's just very rare. I know plenty of bakelite is sold as yellow & red amber. What ...
  4. 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...
  5. Thanks Tassie & Jean. I'm pretty chuffed. Yep Vetraio, was Wenty. Did you go?
  6. This is a cracker Jean.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. You're welcome; circa 1900 to 1910. Possibly a little later with the marcasites (these are more common with later jewellery). Even though this is a stamp, the design would have originally been f...
  10. Hi Musician. Your stamp is lovely. I think it unlikely to be Danish. Scandinavian design from this period is quite distinctive. Your stamp is in the German or French style. It could be design...
  11. That is a cracker story.
  12. 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...
  13. Sorry Kyra. Don't think this is a Varley one.
  14. Arts & Crafts, mission style. Circa 1910.
  15. 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. ...
  16. You've got me curious Jean. You should have my details now.
  17. Same, same. Also explains why Z&W always looks similar to AH but not quite. Who knows why I know that!
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
  21. Zoltan & White. Thats why they look AH but not quite. Also explains hearts. Do a Google search & see what you can find.
  22. 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 & ...
  23. Hi Tassie, I think these are Austro Hungarian. The hearts are unusual though.
  24. PS, I don't think it's a button because it's domed. I think a button would more likely have a flat back.
  25. Looks classic Austro Hungarian to me.
  26. & your dresser is actually a wash stand. There would have been a big jug & basin + all your toiletries on it. That's why it has a marble top. End tables are pot cupboards. Yep, you put your cham...
  27. Hi, your set is German Art Nouveau, called Jugendstil. Bedroom & dining sets were very popular.
  28. Poor Tassie.
  29. Oh yeah. Jewellery can be a cracker. But that what makes it interesting. I've always though the glass posted on CW was really impressive. I like a little bit of arts & crafts glass. Powell is m...
  30. Hi Karen, yes it can be hard to identify a maker. But if you see enough of them you can start to identify a pattern. The Americans did a similar thing with their jewellery. You should check out...
  31. Karen, you're in luck. I got out my jewels today to consider something Paul recently told me so I dug out my German ring & some pieces of Shipton which I'll post for you so keep an eye out. Also m...
  32. Ohh Kyra. That Shipton reference is a find. I think that answers the question as to why these brooches are so similar but slightly different. Looking at the new Shipton version, it is has a roll cl...
  33. HI Martika. I'm pretty sure its either lapis or sodalite. Kyra will probably know. I'm not so strong on stones. More the styles & settings.
  34. Hi Karen, the Germans were the powerhouse of art jewellery during this period. In addition to the schools & artist colonies who taught and made hand-made jewellery, they also had one of the larger je...
  35. Hi Karen, the brown stone is actually orange carnelian. Kyra will know for sure. The brooch with a single berry is german. I know because I have a lovely little ring with a domed lapis in it by t...
  36. Cool, thanks Paul. I suspect they will always remain a mystery. PS, I don't think Thew worked in enamels.
  37. You are welcome rucksczglass.
  38. Look forward to seeing your bracelets Jean. I've got a new WHH piece coming plus I got a nice Instone ring to show when I have time.
  39. Hi Paul, thanks so much for the links. It's interesting the article on Knox mentions that he may have sold designs to both Haseler & Murrle Bennet which may explain this pendant. You are right, it...
  40. Cool. That makes it easy. I can be a bit random with so many little boys zipping around my place. Let me know.
  41. Hi Paul, I was just reading that Martin article on Knox you directed me to & noticed a gold ring pictured that has a very similar leaf to your pendant. The angle of the photo of the ring is diffe...
  42. Hi Karen. The matching bracelet I have is marked Shipton & Co. Are you going to the next wentworth park markets? I might be able to bring some examples for you to have a look at.
  43. Hi Racer, these rings, brooches, bracelets etc are by Shipton & Co. They are often misattributed to Instone but those that are signed are always signed for Shipton not Instone. There appears to be a...
  44. Hi Tassie, agree with Paul, probably from the 40's. Not Wager but still very nice work. I've seen this heart shaped leaf before but don't know who made it.
  45. Hi Jean, the vietnamese have a saying, 'same same but different'. I'm pretty sure this one is Liberty too. You just need some nice some nice Liberty chains to hang them from.
  46. Hi Betty, this is defiantly an Albertina (ladies watch chain). Also I think it's English. I've seen those square spacers on gold & silver Abertinas before. It may have originally had the ball...
  47. There you go Tassie, the Aussie thinks they are kiwi & the kiwi thinks they are Aussie. I recall looking at something quite similar in Auckland a few years ago. I will be interested in anything Pa...
  48. The awesome thing about collecting arts & crafts jewellery is that you can go out with a little money in your pocket & armed with a little knowledge & enthusiasm and come home with a beautiful & uniq...
  49. Aussie Arts & Crafts for sure. No idea of maker. I see Operculum in Aussie jewellery every so often, from the 1860's to 1940's or so.
  50. Hi Tassie, Kiwi Paul might be able to help you more, but I'm pretty sure these are NZ. Also, they are not quite arts & crafts, more like tourist work. Quite like Aussie opal jewellery of the same pe...
