  1. This is a pretty one Jean. The pearl is defiantly a replacement. And the DEP is Depose, but its unusual to see it shortened like that. And that daisy is L&B.
  2. This one - http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/105742-arts-and-crafts-mother-of-pearl-and-silver I love the way Liberty made all different versions of the same design.
  3. No it's not, but I did have a punt on that one. Loved the design but it needed some expensive restoration. My one is via a dealer in the UK. It's a version of one Belle Epoque has. With leaves and...
  4. I'm also very interested in the relationship or link between Knox/Liberty and the Anglo-Celtic jewellery makers. Particularly those pieces with the little rubies & gemstones that are unmarked. Do yo...
  5. Super Paul. I'll drop by & have a look tonight when I have more time. I'm interested to see what you've been up to. The thing with Knox, I find, is that he was so prolific that I suspect he designe...
  6. A lovely piece Paul. I've not seen this design before.
  7. Yes, I remember. Mine is different from yours (you think I'd know!). No worries re the info. I've not had a lot of internet access recently, hoping to get a new computer soon!
  8. We'll all have to keep our eyes open to see if it pops up in a public collection but I'm not holding my breath. It was a very exciting piece, I'm not sure how much it's worth but it sure would have l...
  9. Nice Paul. You need some better ear wires so your wife can wear them! I don't think I've seen Fenton earrings before. So rare and in such good condition.
  10. Hi Jean, I think I may have this same bracelet or similar. I don't know that much about WMF jewellery but it seems they made jewellery in 2 periods. One as part of their Ikora range and one a little...
  11. We'll done Jean. This was a good buy. I have a piece with both marks, designed by one of Farhner's in-house desigers.
  12. Hi Jean, I hope you are well. I concur, this is Australian but it is a little later, maybe as late as the 40's. I disagree a little with Paul (with all respect to Paul's excellent knowledge) and...
  13. Hi Paul, I was the underbidder to you on the Glasgow bit. Am really very disappointed not to get it.
  14. Hi Paul. I have a few of these types of vases but I've never figured out who made them.
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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.
  20. 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 ...
  21. 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...
  22. No worries.
  23. Thank you Katerhine.

  25. Completely out of my usual style but I do love these!
  26. Very pretty pendant Jean. I'm sorry I can't help you with an attribution this time.
  27. 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...
  28. 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...
  29. I make up for Kyra's disinterest in horn bugs!
  30. Woo Hoo! Love a bit of George Hunt.
  31. Looks lovely on you Paul.
  32. PS, so lovely to be sharing so much great arts & crafts.
  33. 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.
  34. 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...
  35. You've been busy Jean. I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
  36. 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.
  37. Hi Jean, does your Saindheim have a big rock crystal in it?
  38. Arts & Crafts jewels can be very chunky, particularly the inter-war pieces and/or the pieces made for ecclesiastical purposes.
  39. 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 ...
  40. Hi Vintagefran, the thing is a blob of glass, like a bullseye.
  41. 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...
  42. 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...
  43. 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.
  44. 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...
  45. 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...
  46. 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...
  47. 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.
  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...
  50. Some clearer photos.
