  1. The chain is not right (similar to yours) but what altered me was the reference to gold plating. MBCo didn't do plate. I initially thought it might be silver gilt (which would also be unusual but ma...
  2. Hi Paul, this was the one in the US I saw. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FABULOUS-VINTAGE-ARTS-CRAFTS-SILVER-GOLD-MOONSTONE-EMERALD-DIAMOND-NECKLACE-/221817071286?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2...
  3. Oooh Paul. I just checked out the pieces you bought and I'm sorry to say they are the ones I think may be repro's I first saw the same necklace listed in the US as a BIN. The listing details we...
  4. Hi Kyra I was the brooch & thought it might be Thew. I was going to do a little research but I didn't really like the stone so I got distracted. I do like the seaweed though. Someone may have go...
  5. Hi Paul. The buckle was indeed a bargain. I know because you pipped me to the post! Super buying, I've never seen this design before. The Thew is interesting because I think it went for quite a ...
  6. Great buying Paul. Did you have a punt on the Thew a few days ago?
  7. Thanks for sharing Paul. Seeing this one is quite a treat.
  8. Thanks Welzebub, it is like Mucha's Document Decoratif. My hubby also collects the Grasset series of design portfolios.
  9. If the pin is not gold, then it may not be Liberty. I'll keep it in mind when I'm checking out my books. Some times things sort themselves out in my mind very randomly. It's got it's own little ...
  10. Hi Jean, you are right on with L&B. I found a pair of hat pins with a very similar design in 'the plique book'.
  11. I look forward to seeing it Jean.
  12. Thanks love decanters. I thought this one was Walsh. Apologies Vintagefran, I just realised I incorrectly answered your question. Duh! If you're still interested, the thing on the right, just ab...
  13. I've never seen the round design or the shape before. But as I said, I just buy what I like when it comes to glass & I love this. I wonder if Walsh made the ruby & vaseline combo?
  14. Thanks for the offer lovedecanters. Now that I look at mine they are quite different. More stylised not quite as lovely and wobbly as yours. I'm pretty sure mine are Powell poppy head. My thing ...
  15. Hi Johan. Lovely lantern. I'm sorry, I've never seen this shade shape before so I can't shed any light (haha) on a maker.
  16. No, I don't think so Johann. The fitting is defiantly not Benson, that I'm sure of. The glass is heavier than I'd usually expect for Powell. I do have some Benson pieces with Powell shades. I'...
  17. They are great BTW, I love the wobbly shapes.
  18. Oh yeah. You can see they are clearly the same. I have a pair I always thought were Powell (+ plenty of glasses). I'll have a look & see if they have the upturned lip. Also, I think they might be ...
  19. Hi Paul. The Powerhouse currently has an exhibition on which has some pieces of Wager. I've not seen it yet so I'm not sure how many there are or if they are from the Powerhouse collection. I think...
  20. It's lovely Jean. A first for your collection. Very little info is available on Australian School makers. There was an Arts & Crafts society in most states which records who submitted jewellery for...
  21. Are you sure because they are also in the Powel book. Do they have numbers etched on the bottom of the stoppers?
  22. Yep, by now you've confirmed it's by Nossitor. You probably also know she never signed her work. I look forward to seeing what new treasures you have!
  23. This really is a cracker Jean. I'd be very excited to own it. Wager is very hard to buy, even though she was so prolific. I used to buy & sell her rings because I'd find them but I've been loat...
  24. Hi Jean, I'm disappointed that this was sold to you as Wager because I've discussed a Wager attribution for this brooch before. There are differences in style & construction would indicate a differen...
  25. OK Jean I've got good news & bad news for you. I feel I can tell you the bad news now because the good news is that this is Nossitor. Very nice score, I would love to have it in my collection. T...
  26. Hi Kyra Sorry, I don't know who this is by. But Paul is right re a possibility of Liberty for 2 reasons. The gold pin is indicated of them + they made little brooches like this. It's one you r...
  27. Hi Jean. I'm right in thinking that this was sold to you as Australian School?
  28. Hi Pip, neither of these pieces are morning jewellery. Morning jewellery followed a strict protocol depending on how close you were to the person who died and how long ago they died. First you sta...
  29. Hiya Pip, your earrings are probably souvenir wear. The church is likely to be some sort of landmark. There are collectors of snuff boxes, vestas and other small silver boxes with churches and l...
  30. I'd pick this for arts & crafts. Possibly English or German. Has some elements of both. I've had a look at my best German book for the mark - no joy. I also don't know any English maker with tha...
  31. Hi Paul. I had a look at the Newlyn Copper book, but there's nothing that would directly point to either of your pieces (there are some good examples of copper by other makers). Colin Phill (one o...
  32. Good fun Jean. It just goes to show how similar their work was. When you look at these, you wonder how many misattributions there are out there. The only way I would know is that Instone used tho...
  33. Hi Kyra, the biggest problem is that the bale has been completely broken off and has a lead solder repair (yuk). Also, one of the leaves has enamel damage (probably from the bad lead solder repair)...
  34. Duh! Here's the link - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/228405201/arts-and-crafts-silver-and-rock-crystal?ga_order=date_desc&ga_search_type=vintage&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=arts%20crafts&r...
  35. Jean, I'm off to bed very soon. I'm out tomorrow but I'll check in tomorrow night. I'll see if I can dig out my comparable bits.
  36. What about this one Jean? Keeping in mind these leaves are cast so some may have better defined veins on the leaves than others.
  37. The berries are different too. Mystery.
  38. Sorry Jean. I mean I don't think its Shipton. And those earrings are Istone. This blue is very popular in Arts & Crafts jewellery. I see it reasonably regularly. Always looks good.
  39. Hi Jean. I don't think it's Intone. I think it's German. Is it the same leaf as this pendant?- http://www.antiquejewellerycompany.com/shop/art-nouveau-silver-cherry-amber-pendant-on-chain/#.VcXxs86...
  40. Hi Agram. That's very interesting. I've seen those lightweight black metal nouveau pieces but never known what they were made of. I know of Berlin Iron jewellery but Iron jewellery is such a specia...
  41. Hi Agram. Lovely stick pin. Like Kyra, I think it's likely to be Art Nouveau. I've seen this type of jewellery before. Sometimes silver, sometimes black metal, sometimes with rose gold berries, so...
  42. No worries Jean. It doesn't matter who made it, I bet it will be lovely to wear. These style of pendants always look great on and only about 1 person in a billion is even going to know it's old! ...
  43. Thanks for your lovely comments, Kyra, Jean & Katherine.
  44. Hi Jean. Those lotus are closest to L & B examples, I agree. I've never seen anything close though, to this composition (in pendant form). And yes Kyra, I think the earrings are spacers or termin...
  45. Ohhh Paul. My Cuzner brooch came from Melbourne. From the same store I also scored a good bit of Mary Thew. Exciting things can be found. Happy hunting! PS, the Newlyn books is quite good. Nab...
  46. Hi Paul. Do you have the Newlyn book. Have you had a look in there for these designs?
  47. PS, just to confuse matters, the Christies pendant is closer to Nossitor I'd say. It's hand made in a very natural style (rather than stylised) and the composition and matching of the stones is s...
  48. Hi Jean & all. I don't think this one is Dunlop or Saindheim. The work is too basic for either of them. Plus I've seen this design many times over the years so I'm inclined to think it's more of a ...
  49. Hi Paul. I'm confident neither of these are Pearson. He has a very strong line and also a distinct stippling and punch pattern. If you like, when I have time, I can take some detailed photos so you...
  50. I know Jean. Duh! to me.
