  1. I agree with Kyra. Probably 2o or 30's. Likely art glass. Nice wearing.
  2. Super. Completely love it. Especially in box.
  3. This is a lovely pendant. I'd say German, they were great at this type of work. Circa 1900 as BelleEpoque suggests. Jugendstil.
  4. I thought there was a reason why I recognised this pendant for Liberty. I was researching something else when I found the moonstone version I've loaded up above. A different interpretation of the ...
  5. Hi BelleEpoque The Jugendstil Schmuck book by Fritz Falk fetters similar brooches (with that lily pad/cherry design & enamel) to Mathias Scheidel. Not much information on them other than the f...
  6. Nice work. I saw this but thought it was beyond repair. I didn't find out until many years after I started collecting Arts & Crafts that Charles Fleetwood Varley was actually my great great gre...
  7. No, I don't know if he supplied Shiptons. I want to know. I think probably not, but you never know if you don't ask.
  8. It's a lovely ring though. You'll enjoy wearing it.
  9. Hi Jean, do you remember when you were investigating your Instone ring I asked you to ask your contact about Instone's relationship with Shipton & Co? This ring is why. It is by Shipton's. You find...
  10. That was the one. Big money. I've been watching them rise in price over the past few years.
  11. No worries Jean. There's nothing wrong with buying a hatpin top, I purchased the English one here knowingly and will probably have it made into a pendant or brooch. There were both pendants and broo...
  12. I just posted a couple of slides from my collection.
  13. BTW, I've seen this seller sell hat pins as pendants before (also buttons made into cuff links & earrings) knowing that they have been converted (by them - there's a consistency to the work and also t...
  14. Sorry Jean, it wasn't in my biggest reference book. There were others similar, but not similar enough to make a confident attribution, just to confirm that the ball at the top is typical of a hat pin...
  15. It is amazing in person because it is so big. It's quite rustic in style in comparison to some of the pieces of horn I've seen.
  16. Hi Vintage Lamp, I think you might of asked me about the ingredients of your almond oil? I'm not sure, I just used one I got from my local health food store. You can use other natural vegetable oils...
  17. This pin is defiantly Victorian. They stopped using those marks in the 1880's (I think, not 100% but maybe 1887). The maker thought that there was something special either about the design, or the m...
  18. These guys are very similar to yours (but not the same maker) - http://www.tademagallery.com/content.htm (not Wager). But this one is spot on - http://www.tademagallery.com/content.htm
  19. Hi Jean, it has no Wager associations. Dorothy's work is very like Rhoda's. The big difference is she was making right up to the 80's so her mid-century work follows those trends - but always sticks...
  20. Hi Jean, sorry, I missed this one. So you're right in thinking it's Australian, but it's not by Wager. Wager's work has quite a lot of movement and the leaf works is crisper. Her work was widely co...
  21. The pins are usually generic steel pins. I've never seen a maker's mark on them. It's not unusual for really great pieces to be unmarked.
  22. Hi Jean, I agree with Kyra. This was originally the top of a hat pin. The round ball at the top is the tell. I think this design is one of my books, I'll have a look when I have time. I have a p...
  23. Very similar - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/212544596/moth-brooch-art-nouveau-carved-horn?ref=sr_gallery_3&ga_search_query=horn&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
  24. Also, another thing, it looks a little dehydrated. Wipe some almond oil on it & leave it for a few hours, then wipe it off. Repeat the following week, then annually. This will prevent prevent cr...
  25. About 1900 for this one. I have a dragonfly bangle, same carving as this one, but the horn is in it's natural brownish state. It's unsigned but defiantly the same design.
  26. Defiantly horn, Kyra will also confirm that the brooch fastenings are made specifically for horn jewellery. They heat the horn up a slide the fastenings inside, so they are actually embedded in the h...
  27. Hi, the mark is a Victorian registration mark. Look online & using the mark, you'll be able to find out the date it was made. It probably has the is mark on it because it's made from some man made m...
  28. Defiantly carved horn. Front looks a little later for horn (decoish) but it could be a little earlier. The pin on the back is absolutely right for the period. I love french nouveau horn jewellery, ...
  29. I'm not sure but I think this may be a sash pin. I was always under the impression that they were made in the US but it could also be Czech. It think it's older though.
  30. Super, I'm currently buying one of these too.
  31. Thanks Jean. I've been about, just busy with family. I have a few treasures I'll post soon. You also had a ring I thought was from the same period, maybe a green stone?
  32. Sure Jean. Post a photo & I'll let you know my opinion. Gold is rare, if you wanted a piece in gold, you had to bring your own to the workshop. Yellow topaz was Wager's favourite stone.
  33. Hi Jean, I remember seeing these types of necklaces new & for sale when I used to buy from portabello road markets. I think it had come from eastern europe at the time. Surprisingly, not many art ...
  34. Hi Antiquerose. Your locket is likely to be vulcanite. It's pressed inside which usually means valucantie. Jet is usually plain. As a double check vulcanite usually smells a little like rubber a...
  35. http://www.925-1000.com/Ffrench_marks.html - boar & crab, french marks for silver content.
  36. Probably a boars head.
  37. Yep, the little flag is Walker & Hall. One of the best English makers/retailers, although this piece may have been imported from France, or more likely, Germany. Then assayed in the UK. If it's a G...
  38. PS, a guard chain was used for ladies watches, they would sweep down & the pocket watch would sit in a little pocket. The slide would weight the chain so it hung nicely. Or sometimes you see these...
  39. Hi. This is a slide for a long guard chain. The cork is to help it hold it's place on the chain, so it doesn't slide around. It's english, the marks are a hallmark, the crown is Sheffield, the li...
  40. I think that's OK. Not a bargain, but a reasonable price. They are very good. I'd be very happy to own them at the price.
  41. Awsome. Dorrie Nossitor. Really, really great buying. Where did you score them?
  42. I've got a few drop pendants with this type of bale. I 'll see if I can dig out a photo for you. Might be your bale is smaller. Might need one with a dog clip or large catch.
  43. This one was spied far & wide - http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/140824-arts-and-crafts-abalone-pendant You need a nice period chain for it. Saindheim often used recycled circa 1900 guard c...
  44. Hi Jean, you're right MB, didn't use those prong settings. The gold work also looks a little lighter than you'd expect for MB. A very pretty thing nether the less. Also, your bracelet is great. ...
  45. No worries. The challenge is to pick the old ones from the reproduction ones. It can be tricky sometimes.
  46. Hi Jean. I'm wondering if this started life out as a bracelet?
  47. Oops, sorry, I meant I'm used to seeing the tops as a ball. Like this one -http://www.rubylane.com/item/753074-RLx23586/Victorian-Dragon-Sterling-Chatelaine-Perfume
  48. This one I'm not sure about. The body looks old, but I'm not sure about the top. I'm used to seeing these as larger round balls. I'm pretty sure it's American & if it was old I would expect it to...
  49. Classic english Victorian/Edwardian locket. Hallmarked for Birmingham 1905. You should also be able to identify the maker (the 3 initials at the bottom). The chain is not original. Hope that helps.
  50. Thanks for the link antique rose. Love those nouveau combs.
