  1. I have a confident attribution for us - http://chicagosilver.com/hanck.htm
  2. I don't know if it's Pierre Bex or not. I've never seen this exact design signed or attributed. I don't know much about Pierre Bex but I do know this brooch is very similar in theme & construction o...
  3. Pierre Bex?
  4. Pierre Bex?
  5. I have a Sasha doll. Still have original gingham dress & shoes but the undies are too small. I nicked them from my sisters baby Sasha doll. My brother had Gregor.
  6. This is the one I mean Jean - http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/162536-murrle-bennett-silver-enamel-pendant I take a punt all the time, it's enviable some of them are going to be duds. And s...
  7. I have good news on this one! I'm pretty sure it's Instone & the bakelite is completely consistent with the period. I've seen other large bakelite drops like this one so I wouldn't find it unusual f...
  8. Hi Jean, I'm pretty confident this one is a modern reproduction. I see them from time-to-time. There are a few indicators. The mark is wrong, the gilding is too bright and the quality is not as s...
  9. Hi Kyra, its on the bottom of my collection page. Large round brooch. Big river in foreground, trees in background. Leafwork & beading around edge. Green & violet colour way.
  10. Hi Jean. I'm sorry to say I've got bad news for you on this one. Let me know if you want to low down.
  11. Have you seen my one Kyra? I'm not 100% sure it's Varley because the colour palate is unusual for him. But it is superb and it's huge. If it is him, and I think it is, its probably by the GoH. It'...
  12. Nice use of gold good, trees & mountain good. Not sure the definition, particularly around the trunk & branches are as good as yours.
  13. Mmmm, looking again I'm not quite sure - kinda - sorta http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANTIQUE-VINTAGE-VICTORIAN-ART-NOUVEAU-DECO-STERLING-SILVER-ENAMEL-BROOCH-PIN-OLD-/361939852353?_trksid=p2047675.l255...

  15. Yeeees, very expensive as a general rule. That's why I only own one! There was a broken one that sold recently, thought you might have been onto it Kyra. A single tree, I thought likely Varley bu...
  16. No, it's not arrived yet. I'm not 100% sure it's by the Dawsons. It certainly has the right look. But a ring like that is so unusual that I thought is was worth a good go. I have 2 pieces which ...
  17. I did go all out & buy the enamel ring with the rose. Did you see that one?
  18. No. Very pretty but not Wager by a long shot.
  19. Yes the marquise opal. You know I don't really pay attention to stones so maybe it was the opal that was a bit extra desirable. I'll post some Newark tips when I get some time (going to bed now - ...
  20. Hi Jean, this is by the same maker as your earrings. Did you see the opal ring that recently sold on eBay. It was quite nice but sold for a lot of money! Interestingly I've recently bought an opa...
  21. Kinda -http://www.esbirky.cz/predmet/3626030?series=2388589d84026194beefe3
  22. Never seen a ring before! (Apart from the original drawings & designs). Very cool.
  23. Hi Jean, I think this is English Arts & Crafts. Earlier rather than later. The bale is quite like one I have on a Saindheim pendant but I think this is earlier. I'm jealous of Newark! I'd love a c...
  24. Hi Jean. Defiantly not Ramsden & Carr. The setting is too heavy. Also not Liberty, I think. I can't recall seeing leaf-work like that before. I'm inclined to think you've got one of those ni...
  25. Hi Jean. If you have a close look at the 'berry' on the very right hand side it looks like it has a tiny bit of enamel loss to the side.
  26. Nothing jumps out Jean. What are your thoughts?
  27. Hi Jean, I've seen this design in plain silver + opals & with the heart shaped leaves & tendrils cut-out + with opals.
  28. Noice, don't see bracelet often.
  29. Continental, probably made in Germany where there were many companies who made silver jewellery & goods like this.
  30. So I finally got around to reading that chapter and also the chapter in Becker that it referred to. That's all very cool that MBCo bought the pieces from Farhner for export to England. If they were ...
  31. Closed 1946.
  32. I call it the plique book, but it is a book on German jewels with lots of plique in it. Jugendstil Schmuck by Fritz Falk. Defiantly a good un if you fancy jewels of this period.
  33. I think Germany had a pretty vibrant movement, similar to the UK with collectives, private studios & design schools so it's really hard to identify where pieces came from. Have you been to Darmstad...
  34. Ooooh, sorry, I thought you were in the UK. I've already had my uni library see if they can get a copy (I'm in Australia), but no joy. They may not own the copyright.
  35. http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/rd/6c286395-bc6e-4935-9483-037542f5f22e Have you had any luck?
  36. 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...
  37. 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.
  38. 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 ...
  39. 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 ...
  40. Could be German (roses) or Scandinavian. Defiantly not Haseler - completely different aesthetic (and not the right mark as you point out).
  41. 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...
  42. 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)...
  43. 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...
  44. 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...
  45. 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...
  46. 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 ...
  47. Also, hello Melbourne!
  48. These are fab. Thanks so much for sharing.
  49. 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...
  50. 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...
