  1. I can so tell you what this is and it's good!. Farhner. I've seen this design with green stones. Very nice. I think I may be able to find out who the designer is too, but you'll have to wait unt...
  2. Is that like blood brothers but more fun?
  3. Hi Kyra, it's hard to tell what the drop was until I can find another example with a drop (the other I saw did not - not sure if it was clipped off or never had one). I've sent this one off to get a ...
  4. Kyra, camera from America is what's usually called a typo!
  5. I've just uploaded some better photos. It looks like there's a crack in the shell, it's just the light reflecting off the natural shape. You can't actually see that in person. PS, Nice try DrFluf...
  6. I've uploaded some much better photos, including one so you can see the mark. Thanks for your suggestions & links. I can't seem to find the mark there. You'll see, it's defiantly Russian. It's t...
  7. English, Victorian. No doubt. It's slightly in the Ascetic style. It's usual to have no marks. I collected this type of jewellery for years.
  8. A little while ago an acquaintance shared an original French jewellery catalogue with me. It showed suites of jewellery, all the same style, but in different configurations. So, you could buy one pi...
  9. When it comes to Fahrner, it doesn't get better than this! It's completely awesome. Valentino, google Emilie Floge, you'll find lots of period photos of her wearing art dresses that Klimt designed...
  10. No way! I bought the ring.
  11. Thanks Hunter. That article was really interesting. This pendant is a little younger than Victorian, but still the interest in nature is the same.
  12. Ah yes Kyra, that's it! I'll have to find some wonky pearls for it.
  13. Night night!
  14. Same maker, different design. The most important thing when you buy enamel online is to check with the seller that there has been no enamel restoration. Often sellers don't notice - ask specifical...
  15. Yes, it was a tad on the expensive side, but lovely and a bit special I think. I have seen one before, I think it was really cheap but it was a while ago. Same as yours. It's not so much that I'm...
  16. Sorry, I've checked a few books but no likely maker. Most of these pieces remain a mystery. Paul's suggestions that you check out Chicago Silver is a good one. They are authoritative on American ...
  17. https://www.1stdibs.com/jewelry/necklaces/more-necklaces/art-nouveau-french-silver-brass-art-glass-bug-necklace/id-j_186630/
  18. Lovely, lovely Arts & Crafts pendant. Defiantly old. Could be American or English. There's nothing that indicates a maker, it's very distinctive work. If you are in the US, let me know, I'll have ...
  19. Ha, ha. Outbid me! Should have known. He's lovely. I've seen a few versions with this glass bee including full necklaces. I never thought they might be PF, but it wasn't always marked so you neve...
  20. I agree with Kyra. Probably 2o or 30's. Likely art glass. Nice wearing.
  21. Super. Completely love it. Especially in box.
  22. This is a lovely pendant. I'd say German, they were great at this type of work. Circa 1900 as BelleEpoque suggests. Jugendstil.
  23. 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...
  24. 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...
  25. I just posted a couple of slides from my collection.
  26. 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...
  27. 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...
  28. 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...
  29. 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...
  30. 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
  31. 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...
  32. 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...
  33. 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.
  34. 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...
  35. 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
  36. 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...
  37. 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...
  38. 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...
  39. 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, ...
  40. 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.
  41. Super, I'm currently buying one of these too.
  42. 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?
  43. 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 ...
  44. 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...
  45. http://www.925-1000.com/Ffrench_marks.html - boar & crab, french marks for silver content.
  46. Probably a boars head.
  47. 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...
  48. 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...
  49. 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...
  50. 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.
