  1. Jean, outbid me. Those earrings went for a lot of money. Mind you, they are very good & Nossitor (of course).
  2. I'm well thanks Jean. The brooch is lovely. Was this the one you were thinking of buying?
  3. Hi Jean, the archives are great but it's more you have to go in. I don't think they have a specialist available.
  4. Prints like these were very popular in the 1900's as part of the Arts & Crafts movement. Liberty made series of nursery prints and other sport style prints that were mounted in frames like yours that...
  5. Hi Jean, uploaded a photo of back for you.
  6. No worries Bluboi, hope you are well & got a nice car part from Santa.
  7. Thanks Paul. I hadn't looked up the motto yet. It's pretty cool.
  8. Hi Kyra, I was just sending you the link to the Dorrie Nossitor webpage which has some great info regarding her influences and noticed it's been updated. Check out the awesome original photo of an ex...
  9. Thanks Kyra, but when it comes to AG, I don't think most of these are significant pieces. More likely to be standard stock. (Having said that, they are all lovely and make a very neat little collect...
  10. Hi Jean, sorry about the quality of the photos of the rounder brooch. It's harder to get some definition on. It's the more gothic brooch, though, which I think has more similar leaf work to your b...
  11. Kyra, he'd better be strong! He'll have a new little boy to lug around soon, and don't think the current little boy is going give up his daddy carries anytime soon.
  12. Hi Jean, the moonstone pendant has more similarities with your bracelet than just the leaf & flower motif, which is almost identical. Like your bracelet, this pendant is domed and it has the twis...
  13. Hi Racer, all these have come from the UK. I do have a AG ring which I bought here. From time-to-time, I do find a very good piece of English Arts & Crafts jewellery here. Sometimes you get lucky!
  14. Thanks Sean. You have a good one too.
  15. Who knows what an expert does & doesn't know. They may be very familiar with the collection they curate but maybe not in Arts & Crafts jewellery in general. They might also have policies and/or limi...
  16. Poor Paul, always having his posts highjacked. But he will go posting interesting & exciting jewels so he's got no one to blame but himself!
  17. Hi Jean, the leaf work and the groupings of the leaf work are very AG. There are also other indicators that it's AG. I'll be interested to see what Paul comes up with. I've got a few pieces for c...

  19. BTW, it's a very very long time since I've done any reading on any of this. It's entirely possible that there's been some more research published and more is known.
  20. Hi Jean, Murrle Bennet are a company, (MB&Co), like Levinger & Bissenger. A least one member of the partnership, John Baker Bennett, was English & initially made jewellery under his name (JBB mark). ...
  21. Hi Paul, thanks so much for taking the trouble to put your argument. You're right that I don't subscribe to the critter theory, but its an interesting idea and worth investigation. It's a really int...
  22. Hi Jean, this is a cracker and I think Artificers Guild is a solid attribution. I just bought a AG pendant. I'll post it when I get a mo.
  23. Zoltan & White.
  24. You've got me curious Paul, I'll have to do some research over the holidays. I've seen various iterations of these pendants, never any attributed to Knox though. I get what you mean about the entr...
  25. Hi Paul. I think these pieces have more similarities to the work Oliver Baker did for the Silver Studios, rather than Knox. It's been a while since I've consulted my Knox books but I can't recall ...
  26. Hi Jean, you could try the Powerhouse but I don't think they'd know. It would be hard to find out I think - mainly because I don't know what it actually is. More often than not, these pieces are ...
  27. This is a cracker Jean. Just the way I like my Instone.
  28. Kyra's egg solution also works for restoring a patina.
  29. Italian. You see this style with all sorts of semi-precious stones. Pendants & necklaces more frequently, earrings, rings & bracelets as well. Circa 1900. Yours is quite a nice example. Most ar...
  30. Oh yeah - Nossitor for this one. I have the matching moonstone earrings.
  31. Hi Jean. I think you may have outbid me on this! Phooey. Brooches are good buying at the moment because they are not as popular as they used to be. It's always smart to buy where the prices ar...
  32. I hope you are wearing this! Lots of reasonable quality enamels are attributed to the GoH, but the biggest indicator to me is the square clip. I know if sounds funny to attribute a peice based on th...
  33. Hi Jean. I see Wager misattributions all the time. It seems that if it's Australian, it's often attributed to Wager (usually Rhoda), especially if it's an attribution made overseas. Also, I've noti...
  34. Hi Jean, the good news is well done on getting your bracelet. These types of bracelets have been getting really rare over the years. It's not Wager for many of the same reasons the pendant isn't. I...
  35. Hi Jean, nice bit, but again not by either of the Wagers. There are a few ways to tell. Firstly the bale is a commercial style, secondly, the design is too loose - the Wagers set their leaves and ba...
  36. Hi Jean, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but neither your earrings or the Tadema earrings are by either of the Wagers. I have some earrings in a similar style by Dorothy which I will try & pos...
  37. No worries!

  39. Hi MollyMay, can you post a better pic of the work on the side and from the shank looking into the setting? Might help with attribution. I'll post some of my collection, there's one there that I t...
  40. Vietnamese. I bought some of these (similar) when I was there about 8 years ago.
  41. Hi yearbyyear I think your right in that the ring is not period. The necklace, though, is a bit tricky because it didn't start it's life of looking like this. The 3 centre pieces are original...
  42. I have a friend in London who told me these have been sold as original at the London markets for a little while now. I agree with Belle, as long as they are not misrepresented and the buyer knows, it...
  43. Hi Agram. This is lovely and I think you're right, it's later than the greyhound, or at least in a very different style. I think it's circa 1910, German, very much in that jugendstil putti style t...
  44. Thanks for sharing Paul. Seeing this one is quite a treat.
  45. Thanks Welzebub, it is like Mucha's Document Decoratif. My hubby also collects the Grasset series of design portfolios.
  46. 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 ...
  47. 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...
  48. 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?
  49. 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 ...
  50. 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.
  51. See more
